Coastal DIY: Seashell Specimen Box

Coastal DIY Beach Specimen Display Shadow Box

Coastal DIY Beach Specimen Display Shadow Box

SUPPLIES YOU NEED:

Beach specimen such as shells, driftwood, and seaweed. If you won’t make it to the beach this summer, you can purchase most of these things at a craft store!
Shadow box frame (I got mine at a craft store)
Card stock
Embroidery thread and needle

Glue gun and hot glue

DIRECTIONS:

First, cut your card stock so that it fits snugly in your shadow box frame. If you’re using embroidery thread like I did, flip the card stock over and add little dots or lines as a guide for where you’d like to place the thread.

Use a needle and thread to embroider your card stock. I made tiny x-shapes and uneven lines. I wanted to keep this feeling irregular and raw.

Next, arrange your specimen on your card stock however you’d like. Play around with different placements until you find one that feels just right!

Finally, glue your arrangement in place using hot glue, and insert the card stock into the shadow box. You’re all set!
