Seashell vase for $1.50
My beach themed guest bedroom is coming along... slowly but surely. I could head on over to Birch Lane and spend thousands of dollars on perfectly matched beach decor but what is the fun in that? I prefer to DIY everything (at my own pace) for as inexpensively as possible!
My DIY Seashell Vase cost just over a buck!
Glass vase - Dollar Tree $1.00 plus tax
Jute Rope - 1 lb spool (4 ply) $6.00 at Walmart
Sand - free down at my beach (or you can get a bag of it at Dollar Tree for $1)
Seashells - free down at my beach!
You will use less than 2' of the jute rope for this project and if you've got a beach themed room, you will be glad to have the rest of that spool on hand for all your next projects! This rope has become a common theme in my guest bed and bath.

I moved to the Point Beach neighborhood in Milford, Connecticut in June of 2018 - these are my experiences of owning a new beach home and relocating to unfamiliar territory. ~ Shelly Straub
