I am a shell seeker. I LOVE to walk the beach and hunt for shells. I think about it…I dream about it…one day I even drove to the ocean all by myself to walk the beach! I search for trays and containers to ‘store’ my shells and I’ve found some really neat ways to display them.
But now, I’ve actually sat down with my glue and some toothpicks and a box of tiny shells and made something pretty.
Well, first I got this candle topper at the thrift store for 25 cents and put it on top of an empty candle holder.
I placed shells all around to see how they would look and then I glued them on.
I had a few tiny pearls so I glued them here and there, too.
I filled the candle holder with shells, too.
So for 25 cents and a little glue (let’s not count what it costs to go to the beach and shell seek),
meet my precious ‘Sea Shell Fairy’.
I’m linking with Nifty Thrifty Tuesday
and Knick of Time Tuesday !
Have you ever made anything with seashells?
(I still have glue and a few more seashells!)
