There are so many quick and simple ways to add a touch of summer to your home! Here’s a fun way to bring a bit of the beach to your patio – with sand and shell flowerpots and planters. I decided to take a boring pot and make it a bit more summery with this […]
An old globe gets a coastal inspired make-over. (Using paper napkins and Mod Podge.)
I love decorating with globes. They are like a round, blank canvas! A few summers ago I took an old globe that I have made over several times and gave it a beachy-blue ombre paint job. Today I wanted to show you that same globe with a coastal inspired make-over. The materials needed for this project? […]
Make a Sandy Beach Frame for your summer memories. (Kid friendly!)
A few weeks ago I shared this project on Skip To My Lou for her Craft Camp series. It feels a bit out of my element when I do a kids’ craft. I just don’t do a lot of them. Want to know why? Because I am mother to 4 boys, all of whom […]
Glass Float Wreath from Sand and Sisal
Kim from Sand and Sisal has a bit of an obsession with sisal rope decor you could say. It is easy to work with and adds a touch of natural texture. Today she is sharing her Glass Float Wreath craft.
Using broken and smaller pieces of coral to create a summery, coastal look.
Last Saturday, Handsome Hubby and I had lots of errands to run, including a trip to the OC Swap Meet. I found a vendor there who (among other things) sells all sorts of fabulous shells and coral at great prices! I have made “faux” coral and “faux” starfish out of salt dough, and Beth from Home […]

These would be perfect for a beach themed wedding or just casual summer time dinner with friends. This post contains Amazon or other affiliate links. I am fortunate enough to live near the beach and can […]
An easy ombre globe.
I love this little globe I picked up at a yard sale a few years ago. I have transformed it a couple of times over. It’s had two Halloween make-overs and been repainted for Valentine’s Day. I have another project coming up, but in the meantime, I got a wild hair and decided to do […]

Summer is coming and the seasonal tide of coastal decor is starting to pull at me. I have previously made faux starfish and red and white coral out of salt dough, and today I am going to show you another super easy way to make a faux red coral. Want the secret ingredient? Sticks. this […]
Sea-Inspired DIY Candle Holders (Made from glass jars & paper napkins.)
A few weeks ago I bought some cool paper napkins on a trip to Roger’s Gardens in Newport Beach, CA. I used them to make invitations to our Mother’s Day Brunch, and in keeping with that theme and color palette, I decided to make some DIY candle holders using the same napkins and Mod Podge. This […]
