Thrifty Thursday: Shells Made In To Earrings
This is a pair of earrings that my daughter made for her primary 2nd Grade Teacher for Teacher Appreciation week. When we were on vacation in Florida, we kept our eyes peeled as we explored the beaches for shells and other items that we could make in to jewelry for ourselves (thrifty idea for a souvenir!!). While we were at Cocoa Beach we saw that most of the little shells had holes in the top, which made them perfect to make jewelry with. We picked a bunch and tried to find ones that were close to matching. We already had it in our mind while we were collecting that she was going to design a pair for her teacher for this week. My daughter gave her earrings as a Christmas gift as well and the teacher loved them.
It was my idea to make a little tag that says "Is It Shellfish that I want you to be my teacher forever?" I thought I was clever. :)
