Did you know that oyster shells make very pretty candle holders?
So gorgeous! Step by step instructions are posted on Waterside Cottages! In brief: work the oyster shell candle holder from top down, holding five shells with interior surface upwards. Arrange oysters shells into a cup, making sure a tea light will fit inside, then glue the shells in place, using a hot glue gun. To attach more layers, turn cup upside down. Add shells as feet, if necessary, so the candle holder lays flat. Now, if you can't find oysters on the beach, you can either go and slurp a few dozen oysters at a restaurant and take them home, or do what Sandi did to create her Oyster Shell Mirror. Pick up a bag full at a local oyster factory!
This sweet shell candle holder will put you in a very relaxing mood! The hammock, of course, helps too. Picture source unknown.
And there's a baby Oyster Shell Candle Holder for sale at Caron's Beach House. Very cute!
