Seashells are reminders of summer days at the beach and that’s why we love to decorate with them. Even if you don’t have your own personal collection of shells, a bag or two of dollar store seashells will help to bring a beachy feel to your home this summer.

Here's one way to display some of your smaller finds.
A few simple supplies are all you need. I used three 5-1/2 x 3-inch frame with a 3-inch recessed depth, a sheet of blue scrapbook paper and some of the smaller shells from my stash.
Take one of the backings off of a frame and trace its outline onto the back of the scrapbook paper three times.
Glue the cut scrapbook paper directly onto the inside of the frame backing.
Be sure that the shells you choose will fit comfortably inside the frame with the back on before you glue the shells onto the paper. You can use three different sizes of the same shell, displaying them from largest to smallest, or three shells the same size.
To make you display look like museum piecesicon , simply print the names of the three different shells you used onto paper, cut them to fit on the outside edge of the frames and glue them to the top or bottom.
