DIY Sandcastle Centerpiece

Recreate the feeling of the beach with this beautiful sandcastle centerpiece to help welcome 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.

This DIY sandcastle centerpiece idea is so easy to make with inexpensive items that can easily be found at the craft store. The base is made from a plastic tray and a plastic sandcastle mold. They are covered with sand and accented with seashells.

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.
