We just made these frames last night to commemorate our Destin vacation last week. We did it together and it was super easy, and affordable too!
*these came from Michael's and are made out of MDF board
*I liked them because they reminded me of sand
*I chose ones that were blue to give a water feel
*Mackenzie wanted the glitter blue and Zach went with the simple blue texture
*I had my daughter pick out which ones she wanted to feature in the frame
*We brought home what we found at the beach
-hot glue gun
Step one: Have kids pick the picture they want and add it into the frame
Step two: Clean shells, make sure to rinse them in a little bleach water so that they are free of salt water
Step three: Cut and glue some of the craft paper on the frame. Any shape or size can work, really what ever the kids want!
Step four: Have the kids pick the shells they want to use and lay them out on the frame
Step five: Hot glue the shells to the frame. Parents make sure you do this step!
Step six: Let them dry and find a great place in the house to put them on display!
-craft paper $.99
-sea shells FREE
Total: $4.08 per frame
The kiddos were so proud of these frames this morning. They couldn't wait to tell people about them! By having them on display, it provides a great story for them to share with people about the time they went on vacation to the beach!
