Make a Shell Wreath -- Instead of stashing away pretty shells collected on beach vacations, make a wreath that looks good anytime of the year but especially so at Christmas. Simply glue shells of varying shapes and sizes to a foam wreath, placing them at random. Finish it with a pretty bow that matches your holiday decorating palette.
