Display beach collections

Do you like strolling the beach and collecting rocks and seashells and memories? Find yourself back at home with a pile of rocks collecting dust?. Here is an easy solution.

Sort through your collection of rocks...ours are from Hampton Beach, N.H. 8/2011 (my favourite rock is the white speckled rock at bottom of photo)

Materials: Glass container, tealights (100 pack @ Ikea for 3.99))

Seashells will also work, (although I have to burn through some candles we made in Dec, to free up some containers).

Line the bottom of container with rocks. Strategically place a flat larger rock in the middle.

Place the tealight candle on the strategically placed flat rock.

And voila, a candle and your collection of rocks on display.

Other ways display your collections: Seashell chime, Birdbath


  1. I love displaying the stones and shells that we collect! I just put them in clear glass containers. But I do really like to idea of turning them into something useful.

  2. I love candle/stone decorations - so pretty, and so easy! :) xxx
