Need a good way to display your favorite beach photo?  Try making our beach frame craft!  This frame is simple to make but looks fantastic on a mantel.  This craft is also a great way to save and display special shells you found on your trip to the beach.  With real sand and real seashells this beach frame craft is a great way to capture your summertime memories. 

What you'll need:

  • Unfinished wooden frame (available at all craft stores)
  • Seashells
  • Light blue and brown paint
  • White glue
  • Hot glue gun
  • Paint brushes
  • Sand
  • A favorite picture
How to make your Beach Frame Craft:
  • Paint the top half of the picture frame light blue.  Paint the bottom half of the frame light brown.
  • Mix a little bit of white glue into the brown paint and paint it onto the brown portion of the frame very heavily.  Sprinkle this area with sand quickly before the paint/glue dries. 
  • After the sand portion has dried, use a hot glue gun to attach the seashells to your frame.  We found white glue was not strong enough to hold actual shells.  Please do not let your children do this step unless they are old enough to respect the glue gun and are well supervised. 
  • Add your favorite photo!
