Time for my second summer project idea I had in mind this year: Framed Sea Shell Heart! It is super easy to make, just as my previous project I wrote about (Beach Craft Idea: DIY Framed Heart Shaped Stones). The only thing I did differently is that I used a painted background I had to lay around and it did fit into the frame so nice! I thought it was perfect as I used blue, green and white acrylic paints to paint it on a small canvas as I was thinking of the ocean.
I arranged the seashells so they would create the outline of a heart, and I added one seashell to each corner of the frame. Everything was glued in place with the silicon gun.
I really love the end result! It totally complements the other beach themed frame. Now I only need to make the third and final frame with sea glass… I really don’t have any idea right now, since the pieces we found are not that smooth and beautiful. But, the ultimate goal here is to create something that will remind us of the summer that has past, so perfection is not what I seek! What I love most about these project is the excitement in my kids’ eyes when they saw the outcome and the fact that they both pointed to the specific items they found by themselves. I think that is irreplaceable, what do you!!!
