DIY Projects With Seashells – Personalize Your Home
No one has probably ever returned from a seaside vacation without a bagful of souvenirs, such as sea shells and snails. We usually put them on a thread and make bracelets and necklaces out of them but this the furthest our imagination goes. We fail to notice that shells, snails and starfish can beautifully blend into genuine decorations which give homes a distinct air. Below are several such DIY projects with seashells:
We’ve said it many times: the first impression is essential. Then why not turn the seashells you brought with you into a wreath to hand on your main door and surprise guests with an original idea? Options of combinations are plenty, we will let you get inspired by looking at the pictures below.
If you have flower pots in the house, you can decorate them with shells, as pictured below. Large sea snails can also be decorative objects, among the shell adorned flower pots.
Since we mentioned sea snails, none of you has probably imagined such a souvenir can actually turn into a mini-gardening container. Or that snails and shells can play a role in creating a romantic atmosphere in your home serving as candle pods. Shells can also decorate a glass bowl with a candle lit in the middle.
A twig wrought or a glass ball with shells in the middle can easily become a genuine decoration for the Christmas tree. If you have the patience to also create a light installation, then you get yourself some original artifacts that will personalize your winter holidays.
With a little effort, you can craft a decoration that will enliven a wall in the living. The fish net like decoration will be there to remind you of the seaside holiday.
Take a photo frame and set it in seashells. Do the same with a wall mirror and you will authentic decorations, with a strong personal touch.
If you have a garden, then you can integrate the sea souvenirs into mosaics that you can use to decorate alleys. It is a project that calls for a little effort and patience, but carrying a strong visual effect, giving your oasis a distinct dash.
