Beautiful shell wreath made by my mom and her friend Deb.
"Your mom and I made the seashell wreath together. I loved your mom so much ! She had all those shells and wondered what to do them. I told her she should make a wreath with them. So - we did it "together" ! It hung on the fireplace for in the summer time."
My mom past away shortly after they made this wreath, but beautiful memories preserved, and still hangs in summer over the fireplace.

Children can enjoy a nature walk and collect their own items of leaves,nuts, pine cones, rocks or twigs and then turn their findings into a project to be proud of. Shells collected on vacation at the beach can be turned into a lasting vacation memory.
