Make a Nature Frame using your Beach Shells!


Make & Do Activity

Nature Frames
Not sure what to do with all the shells your child collected during your beach vacation? Make this crafty frame!

What you do:

Paint a plain wooden picture frame (available at craft stores), using a brush and a small bottle of acrylic paint. Let it dry completely.

Brush Tacky Glue on the front of the frame, and then stick on small natural items such as acorns, pine needles, pebbles, or sea shells. Try to match the decorations to the photo or artwork you'll put in the frame.

Let the frame dry for at least a day before inserting your favorite photo or artwork.
