Day 341: Looking a Little Like Christmas

Today was one of those days where I didn’t really know what I wanted to do for my project. So, what do I do? I work on a few non-nautical projects to get my creative juices going. But before I show you those other projects, let’s stay focused on the task at hand.

My son and I had errands to run, so, since we were out, I stopped at the craft store and picked up a bag of seashells. I had one idea but when I started looking at the actual seashells, it became obvious that my idea wasn’t going to work Like I would have wanted. Then I noticed some greenish seashells that were shaped kind of like Christmas trees:

I added some glitter glue ornaments and starfish charms as tree toppers and have small seashell Christmas trees. Not my most inspired craft, but I think they are cute.

So, now back to the other crafts that I worked on today.

Ravens Wreath

 

I actually started on this wreath last weekend, but wasn’t able to finish with the tulle until this morning. While I was at the craft store, I found the wooden football so I added so letter stickers to it and included it on my wreath. Go Ravens!

But that wasn’t the only other crafting that I did before I buckled down and focused on today’s craft. So, my friend Laura loved the Pandora style necklace I made a while back, and she asked if I would be willing to make something similar for her with a Christmas theme. Of course, I was happy to do it. I made 2.

I figure that Laura can have her pick and whichever one she doesn’t take, I will keep for myself. As an added bonus, making the necklaces got me thinking about Christmas which inspired today’s project.

  1. The little shell trees are cute! Do you think Swarovski hotfix jewels would hold on the shells?

    • I don’t know if they would or not. The shells are pretty bumpy.

      • Thanks for the response!
