Sea treasure display case

Sea treasure display case

No any practical function, just beautiful memory makeup :)

Craft supplies

Unfinished display case from craft store

Acrylic paint – pink and blue (or your favorite colors), paintbrush

Colored sand (we used glittered one, it adds some “wetness” effect to display)

Shells and/or pebbles you brought from your vacation on the sea shore

Directions

Color wooden parts of case with your favorite colors, let it dry

Fill the bottom of the case with colored sand, mixing it artistically

Tip: you may want to fill the very bottom with regular sand so you don’t waste your glitter behind the frame

Cast shells and/or pebbles on the sand

Lock the case

Display proudly

One more tip: postpone making this craft if you are to move :) Shaking trucks may transform artistic piece into a mess!

Instead of throwing away, reuse it!

This bear could be just cute decoration, loosen change collector or desktop organizer

Craft supplies

Clear empty plastic jar (bear-shaped) – you can find it in grocery store, with honey, of course :)

Acrylic paint  (we suggest brown, white, black, yellow, red), brush

Optional – straw hat from craft store (the size depends on the size of your bear’s head :) ), feather

Directions

Paint the jar brown, let it dry

Draw eyes, nose, heels, basket with berries as you see on the pictire or, as you wish :)

Add a hat if you like, stick in feather

If you leave no hat and lid, just put some pens in it and have this custom desk organizer!
