Sea Shell Ornaments

Patricia from MA explains how she made ornaments out of sea shells she had found on a trip to the beach. She suggests using silver or gold paint, but I made the one here with bright pink paint and it is beautiful.

  • Age Guideline: 5 Years and Up
  • Time Required: 20 minutes (Does not include drying time)

The above age and time guidelines are estimates. This project can be modified to suit other ages and may take more or less time depending on your circumstances.

Materials Needed:

Paint your shells and let them dry. You can also leave the shells plain if you prefer. Seal the paint/shell with clear nail polish or clear acrylic spray. Let that dry.

Glue a pearl in the well of the shell or decorate it however you like. Glue a loop of the thin ribbon or cord on the top to hang it with. Cover base of the ribbon with small bow.
