Seashell Ornaments -Gold Painted Shells for Christmas
Here they are, my finished seashell ornaments!
As you might recall, Martha Stewart's Seashell Christmas Ornaments were the inspiration to make seashell ornaments for Christmas. Only I used gold paint instead of glitter.
I found dozens of these shells on a local beach. The ones with natural holes in them I strung together into a Shell Garland.
To Drill the Shells with my dremel tool was super easy. Well, I did crack a couple of shells. They're quite delicate and don't tolerate much pressure.
Instant glamour with some gold spray paint.
There's no logic to my hanging method. I just happened to have a box of ornament hangers, and they work well. I used craft pearls for the finishing touch.
Then I decided to add all the other shells (unpainted, without holes) to the tree too, placing them on the branches.
Tada! Our humble Christmas tree with all the seashell ornaments.
Not exactly Martha's tree topper, but I'm loving my moon shell.
