Decorative Sea Shell Flower Pots

I simply love these sea shell flower pots, they take me on a trip down memory lane. Sunny days and Summer fun. Family days out at the beach. Large gatherings of aunties and cousins, all playing and having fun.

At times we would sit for hours just searching and gathering, seeing who could find the most or the prettiest sea shells, pebbles and anything else we found adorable.

Then we would store all our finds ready for the rainy days.

On the rainy days, we would sit indoors with our mum and make things. My mum is definitely where I get my love of crafting from. There was always something she could find for us to make art from.

We would inevitably glue sea shells onto something.  Decorating picture frames, little wooden boxes, homemade cards for the smallest ones and of course we made sea shell flower pots. Pebbles would, of course, be painted. Then we would hide them all around the garden and home, where they would stay just waiting to be rediscovered.

Such fun and great memories.

So today I have gathered for you 10 great tutorials for you to have a go at.
