Sea Shell Ornaments and Gift Wrapping

You don’t have to live by the ocean to recognize the charm in these sea shell decorations. Some of us have jars of shells we’ve collected over the years. If you don’t have any handy, you could try the craft stores, and don’t forget about these appealing ornaments as you stroll those endless beaches next summer. Bring your treasures home. There are many craft projects calling their names.

This is my favorite. A little raffia, brown paper, and a pretty shell does the job nicely for a gift wrapping idea that works for any occasion.

Tear pieces of heavyweight handmade paper into squares to make this shell ornament.
