Sandy Shells Beach Vase

By:

You don't need to leave your memories at the beach; take them home with you to decorate a DIY centerpiece. This vase can show off all of the seashells and sand that you collected on your last fun family vacation.


Materials:

  • Candle
  • Vase
  • Seed beads
  • 24 gauge wire
  • Mod Podge
  • Water
  • Plastic Wrap
  • Jewelry Pliers
  • Scoop
  • Funnel
  • A chopstick
  • Sand dollars
  • Shells
  • Sand

Instructions:

  1. I mixed equal parts modpodge and water so I wouldn't end up with a thick, sticky coating.  I dipped the sand dollars in and laid them to dry on the plastic wrap for several hours.


     
  2. Next, I took the wire and wrapped a piece around the top of the candle glass, just tight enough to fit uner the top rim. I twisted the ends together and used the round tip of the jewlery pliers to turn the ends under together a couple of times. I then took 3 inch pieces of wire and fed a few beads, a shell, and a few more beeds onto it. I then fed one end of the wire under the wire around the candle and twisted the two ends together. Then, used the pliers again to make a loop. I used the shells with holes and the sand dollars for this decoration.


     
  3. I then placed the candle inside the vase.


     
  4. I then used the funnel and scoop to put the sand around the candle.


     
  5. As I dropped the shells into the vase, I used the chopstick to arrange them. And that was it!
