smiling days/shell-collecting days/
splashing days/content days/lovely
I had a beach day this past week,
and one of my favorite things about
beach days is collecting shells.
Every shell is like a tiny master-
piece; the variety of colors and
shapes and texture is mesmerizing,
as I could spend hours combing the
beach for new treasures.
Now! That of course means that I
have many a shell in my large collec-
tion. Shells make great art and
conversation pieces on their own,
but some shells work a little better
when they collaborate with others.
Welcome to the idea of including
your beach treasures in a one-of-a-
kind wind chime.
Supplies are simple! You need shells,
string, and driftwood (which I actually
bought at Michael's) or a thick branch.
Tie a piece of string to both ends
of one of your pieces of driftwood.
I recommend double-knotting! Cut
off extra/loose pieces of string.
Tie one end of another piece of
string onto your first piece of
driftwood and tie the other end
around the middle of your second
piece of driftwood.
Tie various lengths of string to
your beach treasures (aka shells).
Tie your shell-strings to your
driftwood, remember to cut off
excess/loose string, and hang
your beach treasure wind chime
for all to admire and enjoy!
Happy Beach Days, lovelies!
