Make your own Beach Picture Frame

You will need:
  •  Elmer's glue
  • Seashells (make it special and wait till you can pick them off of the beach yourself!)
  • Sand
  • Picture frame, whatever size you desire, works best with white




  1. Take the glass and back off of the picture frame so there is no need to tape to protect it.
  2.  With your finger spread a thick layer of glue over the top of the frame.
  3. Pour a generous amount of sand over and let it sit for an hour before you shake the excess sand off.
  4. If any spots are left bare, apply more glue to that area and sprinkle with sand.
5.  If gluing on small seashells (dime-sized or smaller), fill the entire back of the seashell and place on frame.  If using a larger seashell, put glue along the outer edge.  Let dry and flip over to see how well they are stuck to the frame.
6.  Replace the glass, add a picture, and the backing!
