I absolutely love the Dollar Tree Shore Living Collection! In my area, this collection sold out quickly. I was able to purchase the Shore Living stickers, Starfishes and Sand Dollars. I love Beach Theme decor, so I was inspired to use some of the Shore Living items to make my own Beach inspired wall decor. Also, Dollar Tree started selling these chic teal border picture frames. I thought these picture frames were great to use for Beach theme wall decor. All craft items were purchased from Dollar Tree. This craft project is so simple, that kids can even decorate the picture frames. These DIY wall decor will not have the glass covers. These are more like shallow shadow boxes.

Glue the 2 picture frames together.

6). Grab the remaining 4 picture frames (no glass covers). Using a heavy duty glue, glue the picture frame on top of the frame with the glitter paper. Let dry for 1 day.
