Tips for Crafting with Seashells

The craft supplies needed for these DIY projects can easily be found at your local craft store or even the dollar store and second hand stores. The first thing you want to do is cover your work surface with newspaper, brown shipping paper, or even parchment paper. Seashells can be pretty messy.

When creating projects with layers of shells, it works best to start with a large shell as the base and layer smaller shells on top. A mix of a strong adhesive glue like E-6000 and hot glue works best, especially if using larger shells. Hot glue may may not hold up over time.

If you are looking for a quick and colorful wall art idea with shells, we have a quick tip for you. Look for free watercolor backgrounds to download as the background image for your wall art. Then just glue your shells on top in whatever design you like. It’s our favorite way to add color and it’s free!

So whether you are looking for ideas for your guest bedroom or living room, these simple projects are a fun way to turn the collected shells from your beach vacations into great gifts and decor for your living space. Enjoy!
