Fun Summer Crafts

Let's see what you'll need to make this craft:


  • Sea shells
  • Nylon fishing line (available at craft stores)
  • Wooden skewer, small branch, or wooden dowel
  • Colored beads (optional)


1. Use shells that have a natural hole in them.

2. String the fishing line through the hole.

3. Tie knots at preferred intervals to create space between shells.

4. Add colored beads as desired (ours are made of salt dough--get your recipe onsite!)

5. Tie strings to wooden skewer and hang! That's it! You've made your first (of many, we hope) sea shell mobile!
