Beachcombing Art - Materials and Equipment

There is no limit to what you can use for this craft; anything you find at the beach can be used and it may be wise to have at least some heavy duty craft glue, or a glue gun with plenty of glue sticks handy.

A frame is quickly made and can even be spruced up with driftwood or shells. Any left over piece of plywood or even sturdy cardboard can function as a background for wall art.

You may have some screen lying around; I used it as a display for shells and lures we came across and stapled a round piece of wood on the top and bottom to give it some weight and keep it from curling up.

For furniture, you will need a drill, screws, nails, a screwdriver and some imagination. There are some good examples and instructions for several types of beachcombing art online, but no books or workshops.

I don't think you really need any; looking at your beach finds, the ideas will start rolling around in your head!
