Beach Ornament:

Buy an inexpensive, refillable ornament from a craft store or online--we like using a larger size, but use any size you like; just look for one that opens by splitting in half. Cut a small piece of rope and use a hot glue gun to glue the ends together, forming it into a circle. Glue the circle to the bottom of the ornament to form a base for it to sit upright on. Fill the ornament with sand, sea shells, sea glass and any other small items collected on your beach vacation--we like to make a little sign to write the name of our favorite beach on. Close the ornament securely and place your little slice of summer wherever you like!
