A month ago, I finally got our pictures hung in the living room. Ever since then, I have been thinking about what else to add to the decor to complete the beach look. Last night, we went to the store to browse, and I came across a few things. I ended up buying 2 pieces to hang on the wall. More on those later-after I get them hung-I can't seem to find any nails at the moment.
While looking through the beach-themed decorations, I saw a few that looked simple enough to make myself, so I took a picture of each of them to remind me what to do later. The first was the wine bottle with seashells and twine. I brought home seashells from Galveston, so I have a ton of those. We have 2 wine bottles at the house that currently have wine in them, and since we don't drink-just cook with wine-it will be a while before I have one ready. I'll need to pick up some twine, too.
The second idea looked really simple-a canning jar with sand, seashells, and twine. For this project all I needed was sand and twine.
Tonight while we were walking around World Market, we saw their beach decorations, and they just happened to have a small bag of sand which was tied shut with twine. I promptly bought it, and came home and made my own jar. You can't see it in the picture, but there is also a small piece of driftwood that I added to the jar. It was a simple, neat project!
