I picked all the shells I wanted while on vacation, got some sand, bought some star fish and came home. I got the wooden picture frame from Micheales (US = Joannes) and set to work. I brushed elmers white glue over the board and sprinkled sand over top, gave it a pad and let dry. Then I positioned my shells where I wanted them and then set to work with a hot glue gun. VIOLA! A perfect way to display a great memory, and a use for my "treasures!"
