The best way to remember a great vacation is to print out photos and keep them where you can see them every day. It’s even better if the photo can be in a frame that also has something to do with where you traveled.

Keep your favorite picture from your beach vacation in a frame that will remind you of your travels. Use items you’ve picked up on the beach if you have them for an even more authentic look.

3. Use glue to attach the starfish and shells to the frame. Remember that if you want your frame to sit on a surface rather than being hung on the wall, you need to make sure nothing hangs over the edge that will be the bottom. If you use hot glue, you can easily pull items off, pull the dried glue off the back and reposition if necessary. E6000 is really permanent, so make sure you have things placed just where you want them the first time.
