Paper Mache Cones are perfect for making beautiful seashell Christmas trees. You simply hot glue your shells to the cones! And to add extra bling, you can spray on a coat of metallic paint, as seen At The Picket Fence.

A stunning example of Oyster Shell trees from Ballard. The insides of oyster shells are naturally shiny. You can collect them on the beach or recycle them from restaurants.

The most adorable mussel shell Christmas tree! I have a glass jar full of mussel shells from when I lived in Rhode Island. This tree is made by Dale Munsill who travels all over New England collecting the shells.

topiary shell tree
I love this idea too. A topiary oyster shell Christmas tree, placed in an urn. A great solution if you only have a few shells. Just space them out! Original source unfortunately unknown.

Cover your cone tree with Beach Sand first, then adhere shells! Via.

Love the mussel shell tree. Must be because I'm a displaced Rhode Islander. ;)
