One of my best friends is getting married in October, and we're throwing her a "Mermaid" themed Bachelorette Party! I just recently decorated my daughter's room with a "Mermaid" theme, so I started getting some ideas of things I could give to all of the bridesmaids at the party. I looked on Pinterest and got some ideas, next thing you know; Im hot-glueing shells and sprinkling glitter everywhere! lol I hope you enjoy making this AWESOME Handmade Seashell Craft!
This craft is perfect for any party, get together or social event! It's soo beautiful once it's finished!
Here's what you'll need:
Seashells - All sizes and varieties
Hot glue gun & glue sticks
Glitter (of course!)
Mod Podge or adhesive spray
Tags (if you'd like to add party label)
Pick a medium to large seashell and find smaller shells, beads, pearls, etc. to glue inside. Use a hot glue gun to put glue in the shell and drop smaller shells and beads inside however you'd like! I made sure to glue a bead on top of the shell to string it later on.
Paint your seashells with "modpodge" or spray them with adhesive spray. Sprinkle with glitter however you'd like. If you want to create a gradient effect like I did in the picture; simple glitter each section of the shell one at a time, letting each section dry in between. Paint another coat of "modpodge" on top of the glitter, or spray them with adhesive spray once glitter has fully dried on the shell.
Take a piece of decorative string or ribbon, and loop it through the bead you glued on in step 1. You can then add charms and tags to make it look personalized, and even more FABULOUS!
And you're DONE!! You can even add your own personal touch of course ;) Hope you enjoyed this Handmade Shell Party Favor Craft! Comment below if you have any questions about this craft! Have a Simply MERMAIZING Day!! :)
