This beach ornament is made by placing sand and small shells
into a glass ball ornament. I started a tradition years ago
to buy (or make) an ornament from every vacation we take.
When we decorate our Christmas tree, it so fun to remember
all the wonderful places we have visited and the memories we made
there. One of our favorite summer vacations is going to the
beach. I have plenty of the typical beach ornaments from the
gift shops. So this year I thought I would make an ornament
using some of the shells and sand we collected from the beach.
My daughters had fun making this glass ball seashell craft
with me, and it is fast and inexpensive to make. Glass ball
ornaments are sold in multi packs (mine were sold in packs of four).
If you would like to see other ideas of what you can make
with them, visit one of these projects: sparkling gem ornament, snowflake ornament, tinsel
ornament, and the paint swirled ornament.
2. Next, add small seashells, small rocks, sharks teeth, bits of drift
wood... anything that will fit into that small hole. Be
careful not to add too many, as the ornament may get too heavy!
