Seashell Sand Jars: Shells work wonders for plain jars. Fill jars with sand, then wrap raffia or twine around the jar tops. Tuck in starfish and tie on sand dollars, shells, and other various beach treasures.
Put a picture of the beach you visited in a shadow box frame and fill the bottom with sand from that beach. Much neater than a random jar of sand and shells! decorate the frame or put seashells or treasures found on the beach in the shadow box
Bring home the beach. Before leaving your beach vacation collect a little sand and a few shells. Place "the beach" in a jar and create a tag with the beach and date and always have a bit of the beach with you. - would be cute for a beach wedding
