Painted Shells Make Perfect Tea Light Trays

Painted shells, a craft project cut out for me! Easy and quick, and it's for candles which I love. Makes for a thoughtful gift too!

I love the large flat quahog shells that I find along the shore here in Rhode Island. They're rustic, and as you can see, can be easily turned into chic candle holders.

All I needed to do was applying primer, then giving the shells several coats of glossy gold paint which adds that extra glow when the candles are lit. Oh, and if you wondered about the sparkly starfish in the picture, you can find out more about them here! White Space White Space
