Display your beach-combing finds by filling a picture frame with seashells and showing off their nuances of color and shape. Mount one kind of shell -- or as many types as you can find at your vacation spot this year.
Bivalve sunray and coquina shells suggest butterflies; rows of scallops look modern and iconic; or just create an artful freeform assortment.
Can't get to the beach? You can purchase shells at seashellcity.com. If you don't want to make your own frame, you can also buy readymade deep-sided frames, or scrapboxes. Be sure your picture frame is deep enough to accommodate the contents.
