I’m adding my DIY seashell basket craft to your inspiration along with the features this week. I found an old and ugly basket and transformed it by painting, adding shells, and wrapping in sisal rope. Hop over to my post to share some love with a comment or pin!

Beth, from Creatively Beth, used a plain wood craft frame and embellished it with hemp cord and shells. This DIY craft idea is perfect for displaying a special beach vacation picture inside for summer decor!
