Beach Sand Photo Frames

Every summer our family takes a trip to the beach.  This is one of our favorite activities.  Because of our love for the beach we decided to do a family craft so that we could bring some of the beach home with us. 

We used foam core poster board and cut it out to the size of frame that each person wanted.  We used an utility knife to cut the foam core with.

During our vacation we collected shells, rocks, beach glass, sand dollars, etc. from our walks and our boogie boarding trips

We also brought back a bucket of beach sand.

We covered the foam board frame with white glue and layered the sand onto the frame.  Then with the glue and also a glue gun we attached the shells, rocks, wood, etc.  Each person had their own unique design.

After the frame was dry we put a 1/4" ribbon around the side to hide the foam edge.

Then we placed one of our favorite beach pictures inside.

And that is how we brought the beach home with us!

Use the leftover items from your beach frame to make a "Bring Back the Beach Bowl"
