Bring your family vacation home for the holidays. Display shells in a clear container for a simple, inexpensive decoration that can beautify any surface all year long.

Materials Needed:

1. Collect about 30 shells from the beach and gather sand in a pail.
2. Buy a large candleholder and a pillar candle or refurbish something you already own.
3. Pour the sand into the candleholder.
4. Place the candle in the middle of the sand.
5. Place the shells inside the candleholder to surround the candle.
6. For a fresh scent, add potpourri around the shells.
