Seashell Beach Blocks

Seashell Beach Blocks

There’s something about beach themed decor that makes me swoon. I’m not sure if it’s the muted colors of the sea or just the fact that anything beach related seems to invoke a calming sensation within me. Soft blues, greens and natural sand colors are among my favorites. Seashells are such a fun way to dress up something plain so this seemed like a great project for summer or any time you want to bring the beach indoors.

I originally made this project for Hobby Lobby via DecoArt using their Americana paints for the base, and the Americana Writer to write the letters.

You simply paint the blocks, use glue to write the letters on the larger blocks, then press small shells into the glue. Use the 3D Writer paint to write the letters on the smaller blocks. That’s it, easy peasy!
