{DIY} Coastal Mobile, Windchime & Tree

Are you ready to get your craft on?? 

Thanks to Diane of Home Sweet Homemade, we have a triple shot of Coastal Crafts for your pleasure today!  Diane's blog is about finding beauty in homemade simplicity; which these projects fit into.  

Diane and her partner are extremely artistic and have created several fun, easy and homemade projects which will add beachy simplicity to your home. Enjoy!

PROJECT ONE: Diane recently came home from work to find a pretty mobile created from driftwood and seashells on her back porch - what a lovely surprise from her loved one!  Seashell shards, small blue beads and bead thread create a stunning beautiful Seashell Mobile.  This would be an excellent way to use treasures collected on your last trip to the beach.

PROJECT TWO: Our favorite part of the Seashell Wind Chime design is the originality of using buttons, beads and shell shards with along with full seashells. Using pieces of shells can be extremely artistic and interesting!

PROJECT THREE: Diane and her partner used small sea glass pieces to make a beautiful sea glass tree.  Another simple project that provides exceptionally beautiful decor!
