How to make a sand photo frame

If you want to preserve your favorite summer beach memories, there's no better way to do it than with a cute sand photo frame. This is my favorite kind of DIY project: It's really easy to make, and the results are awesome.
You get bonus points if you can use sand and shells from your last vacation, but the frame will still turn out beautifully if you don't. Watch the video and check out the instructions to learn how it's done.
