Creations, Summer Crafts & Beachy Accessories

In the process of dragging around trying to recover cleaning up and putting away after our recent Family Reunion, I realized that I have several quick and easy craft ideas that I haven’t  shared with you and I was really glad because my creative mojo is totally drained

these everyday accessories were decorated with shells, tiles, glass beads and sea glass

An inexpensive mirror and a small cabinet from a craft store get new life and lots of pizazz with some paint and a little bling

jewelry box thepaintedapron.com

I have a big box of old jewelry and various found items that is fun to dig through and find things to re-use such as this faux emerald hair clip [line of stones center front]

and this enameled circular piece that was once part of a necklace

glass tiles, sea glass and craft stones were added with some paint dots to decorate this key cabinet or jewelry box

The tissue box was an unfinished wooden piece purchased from the craft store, painted and decorated with some large glass fish shapes that were formerly part of a wind chime

Jute or twine wrapped around a colorful bottle gets a summer look with shells tied and glued on the knotted ends

The mirror was a weathered wood piece that I dry brushed with golden ochre and turquoise paint and sanded to make it look old and worn

More tiles, stones, ceramic pieces decorate the top, bottom and corners

    Yes, yes, yes! I need to find some fun things like you have to glue on though! You could start a craft booth with these beachy items. What beautiful projects and they look so great out by the pool. Enjoy them all!
