Don’t have much money to travel this summer, consider then just visiting your local beach, lake, or county park. But if your looking to bring the beach home with you I have created a great list of beach themed items to decorate your home with.

How about something sustainable and beach inspired? These glass containers are made in Mexico of recycled glass, what a beautiful color they are and can re-purposed throughout the house (try storing makeup brushes in the bathroom, kitchen utensils, or even pencils and pens in the home office) these are so pretty I’m sure in no time you’ll find a way to make great use of them

An almost free tip is to go to the beach nearest you and collect shells, and some sand place it in the bottom of a mason jar with lid on. Then you can have some sand & shells everyday at home making a great dining table centerpiece. Another cheap solution is collect shells take them home rinse them and let air dry. Then attach them to a mirror with glue, let dry and you will have a beautifully decorated mirror.
