How to Make a Beachy Sandcastle Centerpiece

Sharing is caring!

Recreate the feeling of the beach with this beautiful sandcastle centerpiece to help welcome in the much awaited summer. After the long winter we had this year, it will be nice to have this beachy scene to help remind us that yes, in fact, winter is finally gone.  Next time you go to the beach, gather sand and shells to add to your decoration. I also like to accent with pieces of colorful sea glass.  Add flameless candles and tea lights to illuminate your sandcastle beach display.
