Shell Decor Ideas

I have always loved seashells and going to the beach! They add such a light summery touch to rooms! But I also like displaying shells year round, to help remind me of summer and the good times I had at the beach. So I keep my eyes open for new ways to do that. I found some ideas at several different sites that I really liked–If you went on a beach vacation this summer and collected some shells, maybe you’ll see some ideas here that will work in your home!

Take a look at the many containers you can display shells in…

    Makes me smile to see how people use shells for decorating on their actual houses. I`ve seen chimneys and gate posts covered in shells.. They`re pretty indoors, but using them outside is a different ballgame.
