Shells galore, what to do?

On our recent beach vacation trip, my MIL and I collected lots and lots of shells.  Any ideas on what to do with them? We like to do crafts but are at a loss as what to make with them.

Any suggestions would be great!

Re: Shells galore, what to do?

  • Fill one of those glass base lamps part way up.
  • You could just put them in a glass jar, and display them somewhere in the house.

    Get picture frames/mirrors and attach them to those. If you use frames then you can put pictures of the vacation in them, a mirror would be a cool accent to an island/beach themed room.

    If you want to get really crafty you can string them and make a lamp shade. Or string them over Christmas lights and make some tiki themed lights for a patio.

    Last idea, you can get some inexpensive votive holders and use morter to attach them, and with the extra morter you can make stepping stones!

  • Christmas ornaments.  If you end up with too many shell ornaments you can give them away as Christmas gifts to family and friends.

  • Some shells you can turn into candles. I've also made key holders.

  • You could get a shadowbox frame and glue them inside into a heart shape and a add a card with the date/vacation, etc.  I've seen this done on Pinterest with pebbles from a honeymoon and it looks really nice.
