With this DIY you can bring the joy of summer and the beach into your home! We encourage you to take a trip to the beach and go shell hunting! If you do not live near the beach, shells from your local craft store will work just as well to bring the feel of the beach to any room in your home. We hope you enjoy this simple DIY and get a chance to make your very own seashell candles!
