Hi there and Happy July! It is finally July, summer is here and I can’t quite believe it just yet that I have the next two months off!! Whoot!! Last week was originally going to be our Int’l Bloggers Club Challenge for June, only that I completely messed up and forgot all about it. But my lovely friends from the club are so amazing and had no problem postponing it for today. Thank you girls, I appreciate you so much!
We have such a fun theme this time, [we actually do every time, but I really liked this one!] it is all about pebbles, or little rocks and such. Very summery and perfect for me as we live a few steps away from the Atlantic Ocean here in the South of Spain. Our beaches are beautiful and sandy and every time we go, we bring home pebbles, rocks and shells as well.
I kinda knew right away what I wanted to make, but just really planned it wrong. The project I’m going to show you today turned out cute, at least I am happy with it, and it really adds to the beach vibe that I have going on in our home. Here’s how to make a beach crab sign using rocks.
How To Make A Beach Crab Sign Using Rocks

What you need:
one bigger rock for the body of the crab
hot glue gun
reversed canvas painted all white
I re-used a canvas I had already. There is something painted on it on the other side, the side you actually would use to paint on canvas. But I just really like the deconstructed look when turning it around and that, turned around, it has a frame. I painted the wooden frame with white chalk paint and also the inside, the canvas, with brushes of white chalk paint before I started with my beach crab.
Then I started by arranging the crab with my rocks and just trying out different ways of making the crab with them.
When I had my crab all ready in front of me on the canvas I ¨fired¨up my hot glue gun and simply glued on all the rocks and pebbles.
And that was basically all I had to do! I now use it in a vignette and really like the beach vibe it ads to my decor!!
So here you go, you can make your own beach crab sign right away if you can find pebbles and rocks in your garden or if you live close to a lake or beach, have an old canvas and a hot glue gun ready to be used.
I hope you go and see what the other ladies have been up to! I can’t wait to see!
Thank you for stopping by the blog today, wishing you a great day…
