Summertime… the season of sunshine, plenty of relaxation, and beach craft ideas galore. After many months of waiting, aren’t you excited to slip into your favorite sundress and spend a few hours strolling by the shoreline? After all, there are shells to gather, sea glass to collect for crafts with glass, and a cool, clear ocean to dip your toes into. Everyone loves a good trip to the beach, and summer is the perfect time to embrace your inner mermaid or fisherman’s wife.
However, not everyone can make it to the beach this summer. Some folks are just way too far inland to make a trip to the seashore very practical, so they’re stuck scrolling through social media posts of their friends and family enjoying sand and surf. If that’s the case, there are plenty of decor ideas that can bring the beach right to your home, from mason jar crafts to swell shell projects. This means that anyone can feel close to the ocean, no matter where they live. Whether you’re planning a beach vacation or longing to feel those coastal vibes at home, this list has it all.
And if it’s upcycling ideas that you’re looking for, no one can turn ordinary materials into beachy luxuries quite like Sarah Norton Ramberg from Sadie Seasongoods. Be sure to check out projects like these ocean-inspired Coastal Farmhouse Seaglass Candles on her blog!
