Beach Decorations...

As you might have guessed, I am huge fan of the beach. I love everything nautical- the color of the ocean, sand, shells, everything about it! I am constantly at the beach collecting shells, and sand. As you saw on this post I have started a sand collection in a huge vase- but maybe you're wondering what I do with the rest of my items from the beach...

I like to use old candle jars to collect shells. I have about 5 jars located throughout my room with shells set up different ways. So far I have just mixed and matched shells from different locations- but as I go on collecting shells- I need to start thinking of different things to do with them! I may put together a few  jars with things I find on specific beaches instead of mixing them up...

Here is one of the many jars I have filled with shells:

Used a Diamond Candle jar and some shells from the beach to make a decoration for my room!

It's great to reuse the candle jars because it is a free way to decorate a space!

My mom has started making shell wreaths and I wish I had a picture of one because they are gorgeous, I will have to share one sometime soon. She is able to make them so nicely- she even made one for me. I started checking out Pinterest for different ways to display beach items and here are some things I found.....

beach house decorating with shells in jars

I have shells but no sand, so this might be a no go. Maybe I can use them somewhere else.

I love finding items that can be repurposed and beach items are amazing because they can be used in so many different ways. The above are just a few of the many ideas that are out there. My future home will definitely be decorated like a beach house so starting now by making items with beach findings can  only help my future decor budget!

Do you have a certain type of style you find most appealing in house decor?
