Display Your Shell Collection Instead of hitting the souvenir shop, bring home a bit of the beach from your next vacation. Simply scoop up shells and sand, decant into pretty bottles—like these corked vials and apothecary jars—then add labels. Over time, you'll create truly personal mementos that double as a stunning vignette.
What to do with your seashells and sand you save from vacations: Buy a shadow box frame and pick a picture from vacation that you took next to the ocean. Place the sand from that beach in the shadow box, add your seashells, sand dollars, starfish, etc. and you have a cheap and easy vacation keepsake!
