Clean the glass container with soap and water.  To make sure it is free of oils wipe it down with alcohol after washing. Glue on the larger seashells first and fill in the holes with the smaller shells. Gather your similar small shells to surround the top rim of the hurricane vase. It's kind of like a seashell puzzle, have fun with it and be creative. No two vases will ever be the same. Share your DIY pictures with us!.

Coastal summer beach tent
There are a few forms of beach tents to choose from, we picked out our three favorite DIY's to get you started. You won't need many tools or supplies, it's a pretty simple summer DIY. We hope you enjoy.

Coastal Bohemian style beach tent from the creative team at Apartment Therapy.
Coastal summer quilt beach tent

We love this sweet coastal quilt tent, this one was made for the kids. Imagine taking a king size coastal quilt and making one for the adults to enjoy.
Coastal A frame beach tent
The A frame tent is more structured than the Bohemian style stick ones and is the most popular tent. This is probably because it stays together for storing and travels nicely for an easy set up. We haven't tried this one yet but can't wait to get started.


 Summer is around the corner and we can't wait for long days on the beach. Having a cool place  in the coastal outdoors to hide from the strong summer sun makes for the most enjoyable coastal relaxing. Here is a fun nautical DIY: Make a Summer beach tent.
