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

beachy accessories

Similar to the Beachy Bench,


Chippy Side Table



and Mermaid Pot,


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

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


This inexpensive mirror got dressed up with more tiles, glass and paint

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

More dots and swirls and sea glass

beach bottle

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

shells and jute

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

tiled mirror

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

Now, don’t you want to go glue something?


Or fill a pot?


or three…




sea glass, glass beads, stones/craft stores such as Hobby Lobby, Michaels, Walmart

tile/small decorative tiles are sold by the sheet at Home Depot, Lowes

    You are OVER THE TOP creative Jenna with your made over beach accessories! Love your key cabinet repurposed for jewelry and blinged out. Your mirror is beautiful dry brushed with your colors and tiles too 🙂

    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!

  3. All of these creations are BEAUTIFUL! I absolutely love the painted bench with decorations.
