In the best time for beach holidays, we have taken the topic “crafts with shells” to heart and would like to give you some creative DIY ideas. Decorating and crafting with seashells not only saves your excellent holiday mood for a long time.

Crafts with natural materials
Crafting with natural materials is a popular pastime for both adults and children. Exploring natural shapes, textures and colors not only stimulates your own creativity, but also trains your senses and intensifies your perception.
In an earlier article we dealt extensively with making lanterns. Whether you are planning a garden decoration or terrace design, mussel shells can always be used. Lanterns and lanterns can be put together from old mason jars, tea lights and your own imagination. And if you also decorate with shells and rope, you’ll get a little closer to the mood of your last vacation.
