A beach-themed Christmas ornament to craft this summer

 While browsing the internet for ideas for my Christmas in July posts, I found this fun project I thought would be perfect to share in August: Beach Themed Christmas Ornament.  Isn't it fun?  It's by Wendi at H20Bungalow.

The project requires a large round clear plastic ornament.  Then sand, shells, and driftwood are added.  (If you visit a beach this month, scoop up a few little found objects to bring home and plan to make one or more of these ornaments.) 

To make the ornament even more fun, Wendi constructed a little sign out of paper, paint, and a wooden skewer.  She gives tips for making sure the sign will stand upright in the ornament.

The finishing touch was to paint the ornament cap in a beachy color and then add a raffia bow. 

I fell in love with this ornament and will probably try to make at least one, at some point.  Using summer souvenirs to make a keepsake ornament is such a fabulous idea, don't you think?


  1. That is cute. My daughter and granddaughter went to Alabama last year and they have some shells and such. Will show her.

  2. A great idea indeed, I need to make some about my summer! My daughter has a place at the beach and she is so crafty, I will share this with her. Thanks for sharing.

  3. Great memento when you visit the beach and bring a little sand and a few shells home with you.
