Adding glitter and gemstones to seashells

To add a nautical flair to your home, add shimmer to seashells and other pieces of decor. To achieve a glitter-like effect, boil water and add 4 tablespoons of crystals. After the crystals have cooled down, mix in a drop of blue food coloring. Once the crystals have dried, glue them to the seashells with a hot glue gun or colored electrical tape. String it together to hang it on a wall or in a vase.

Creating a beach small world

Creating a beach small world is a great way to connect with your child’s love of the ocean. Shells and water add sensory experiences to the game, which your child will love.

The possibilities are endless.

Creating a wall art vignette
