I’m not a beachy person (at least hot beaches), but I DO love beach crafts. Why? They incorporate some of my favorite shades of blue and green, and they are often simple and natural. Right up my alley! I’ve put together a collection of gorgeous beach and coastal home decor crafts for your viewing pleasure, and I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. One of my favorites is this sea glass mosaic tray from Kim at Sand and Sisal. Kim’s tutorial makes it very easy. Are you looking for more beach and coastal inspiration?
