My Beach Treasures


I recently took a trip to the beach with some friends for my birthday. We had a wonderful and while I was there I collected some shells to remember the special occasion. 
When I came home I made a jar to fill with all my beach treasures. 



I took an old Jelly jar and...

 painted the lid and tied some lace around the top (because everything looks better with lace). 



Finally, I hot glued a sand dollar to the lid to add a beachy touch.



As you can see I didn't fill that jar completely...that is because I am looking forward to many more beach adventures to come.

Here are a few Pinterest beach jars for a few extra ideas :)

Sort shells, star fish, and sand dollars into different jars.
