Homemade Accessories: These mobiles made from driftwood and shells are an easy-to-make accessory for the outdoor dining room.
Sun Spots Invite the first rays of a summer morning to cast hoop-shaped shadows on a wall. Gather shells such as oyster, jingle, and limpet that the ocean has worn down into rings and tie them at regular intervals to glistening white raffia or kite string.
I have filled an urn with shells (not this high!) & put a piece of glass on it to make a pretty outdoor table. If you don't have enough shells, you can "cheat" by filling the bottom with packing peanuts or bubble wrap, then just put a top layer of your prettiest shells.
