This was an easy craft using some craft store shells and a branch from the backyard!
Beachy Branch Featuring Shells
I got a cool vase at a garage sale and decided to make a beach themed branch for my beach house.
The shells need a backing so they will stick to the branch with hot glue. Run a bead of hot glue around the edge of each shell and place it on card stock paper when the glue has cooled use sharp scissors to cut the shells from the paper...now they will have a solid back.
Trim the branches to leave little branches you can attach the shells to the large branch by making a "sandwich and attaching with hot glue.
You can attach the shells in clusters and in singles for variety. I wanted the clusters to simulate flowers. I definitely recommend a green branch to do this craft because a dried branch is more brittle.
The other branch is understated allowing the main branch to get all the attention while this branch adds balance!
This pretty shaped branch made the perfect little beach makeover!
