Every summer I am fortunate to spend time at the beach with my family where one of my favorite activities is looking for shells. I love to stroll on the sand searching for treasures and inevitably end up coming home with bags of shells – mostly white of course.
The shells find their way into various jars and bowls around my house and have provided great inspiration for a few craft projects as well. Remember last year when I used a group of oyster shells to make a decorative ball? (Complete instructions can be found HERE.)
This year my bags of shells inspired me to create a line of nautical inspired Christmas stockings!
Each design is made from burlap and features a different shell.
They look great as a grouping of all the same design as well as a mix of all three styles. To learn more about these new designs and to see additional stockings please visit my Etsy Shop.
