beach rocks project

from down under & another lover of the beach…

the lovely Simone Georgette author of {Beach Vintage} blog

comes this perfect project

"Here is a really simple and easy project. I made this with my daughter and niece so it's a good project for kid's to get involved with. You will need: A small blank canvas (I bought this one from a "cheapie" store for $5.00) , a collection of rocks from your favourite beach ( I have used 16) and some Tarzan Grip glue (or similar craft glue). You need to make sure your rocks are flat and you will need different sizes to form each "pod". Firstly you glue the rocks on top of each other. It's best to use 2 or 3 to form one "pod". Then glue the finished "pods" onto the canvas however you please. I have finished it off with the date and location in pencil"

when I saw this I immediately thought of those rainy cape days with my grandson and now I have a plan!

I also thought of my readers who will be visiting beaches this summer.. & what a nice reminder of those sunny summer days

& it will also help me do something with the absurd piles of beach rocks I can’t seem to stop collecting!

three in one..I love it!

Many thanks for featuring my project on your blog today. I am a little jealous of the fact you live at Cape Cod. It is one of my all time favourite looking places. Have a great week. Simone xx

So glad you found beach vintage, she is a sweet spot to visit and don't we all have a collection of beach peddles looking for a new place to shine.
