Seashell Creations
Nature provides a bounty of beautiful materials for decorating and crafts. The ocean is especially generous with her gifts; people have been using seashells for thousands of years to create clothing, jewelry, and décor. Here is your chance to learn to use shells in unique holiday creations. In a pre-recorded video, you will get to see imaginative holiday decorations and we will take you step by step through a shell craft demo. Free craft kits will be available for pickup while supplies last, beginning December 15. Call 561-544-8605 to reserve your kit.
