 No?  Then, I'll tell you.

They've been transformed (except for one) into fabulous seaside beach cottage doorstops!

Okay, let's start with the prankster.

Seriously, does it get easier or beachier than a simple rock?  Sure, you can paint it or transfer an image onto it; and, while that could jazz it up, it's not even necessary.

Now, who doesn't have a mason jar on hand?  I added some colored sand, shells and a piece of jute twine.  Done.

Weight down a straw tote with some rocks, add a hand towel and a magazine.......and this aDOORnment is in the bag!  Adding some flip-flops to this ensemble would look absolutely adorable.

I drew a little starfish outline onto some cork contact paper, slapped it onto a brick, then added a little crystal.  After all, a star has got to twinkle; even this one.

Scuff up a leftover nut tin, transfer or paint something onto the surface, stash some weighty pebbles inside, glue it shut, then add some rope.  Done.

Perhaps you have a tin like this lurking around in your garden shed.  Add those weighty pebbles, topped with some seashells, and that breeze isn't taking your door anywhere.

I'm sure you've got a stockpile of fabric remnants in your craft room.  Sew yourself a simple pebble pouch, cinch it shut, then embellish as you wish.
