A Seashell Christmas Tree- A Beachy and Beautiful Way to Decorate
My daughter recently gifted me a beautiful jar of seashells that she found at the thrift store. I used a couple of them for other projects, but then my mother-in-law brought me another thrift store find of more seashells! If it wasn’t obvious that it was time for me to do a seashell craft, I found a foam cone in my craft area that was just perfect for this project. (It wasn’t a perfect cone, there may have been some kid damage to it, but that’s the perfect part of upcycling!)
Almost all of this can be upcycled/found at a thrift store. We even used a clay pot with a bottom to be a little pedestal. This project can be done in several ways- you can paint it after, add glitter, twinkle lights, etc. There are definitely different ways to make it your own!
