DIY Creative Beach Decor Ideas

Here are a few DIY ideas to inspire some fresh beach decor in your home, with a few alternatives if you’re not feeling so crafty!  

1. Seashell Mirror


Is there anything more beachy than seashells? A lovely way to display these beautiful creations of nature is by adding them to a mirror. You will certainly add a unique and seaworthy look to your home. You simply need to collect seashells in a variety of shapes and sizes and affix them to the mirror of your choice. You’ll want to be sure there’s ample space to glue the shells, so choosing a wide-rimmed mirror is best. Get the tutorial for the above mirror from HGTV here
