Missing the beach? These beach decor ideas for your RV will make you hear the waves no matter where you’re camping!

Here are some simple touches that can make your camper or motorhome feel like seaside cottage.

1. Driftwood decor

This DIY craft project makes a good way to show off beach souvenirs collected during your travels and would look pretty hung in a window where it catches the light.

(If your beach combing adventures haven’t been so lucky, you can also buy driftwood and sea glass fairly inexpensively.)

You can also use driftwood to make a shelf like this one.  Museum putty can be used to secure decorative items to the shelf during travel.

2. DIY beach glass bottles

These pretty DIY bottles are made from wine and liquor bottles painted to look like sea glass.  If you don’t have much room for displaying decor, why not apply the technique to DIY containers for liquid soap or cooking oil?
