Have you ever collected a ton of seashells and you didn’t know what to do with them? Every time we go to Florida, we collect the prettiest shells. Even if you don’t have your own shells, you can purchase them and pretend you were there!
We’ve turned our shells into this handmade Christmas Seashell Ornament (below) and a seashell wreath.
Every ornament on our Christmas tree seems to have a special memory. They’ve either been handmade like our “I Spy” Ornament or we’ve purchased them while traveling.
We also love to collect or make Christmas ornaments from everywhere we travel. I love them because they do not take up additional space, add to the clutter, and I think an eclectic Christmas tree full of memories is fabulous.
This seashell ornament is super simple. Save your shells and let your kids fill clear plastic ornament balls with them. These are actually the shells leftover from the shell wreath I made.
