Decorating with sea shells

Disclaimer: I am still on my vacation. This was a scheduled post but I know for a fact that I will be collecting sea shells from the beach, here on the Black Sea. I know for a fact that I will be bringing those sea shells home like I did last time and try to figure out a way to display them.

Growing up by the Black Sea (I used it as my back yard every summer) I used to collect shells while hanging out at the beach. Once the carefully chosen ones where collected I would try to make either necklaces or bracelets out of them or I would put them in a bowl somewhere as a decoration.

No matter the style of my home I always will try to incorporate somewhat of a coastal design in it or at least have art work or accessories that bring in that beach feeling in my home. For example, I have an oil painting of the coast of the Black Sea in my home as well as a ship, a coral, and few other small knick knacks. With all the shells that I have collected over the years as well as the ones I am hoping to collect, here are few project I am considering or I came across on the web.

This is giving me a great idea


These two ideas are great for the holidays



here is an idea for the kids


I already am loving some of the ideas. Hopefully I will be able to execute them once I am back home, or at least by the end of the year.
