Here's how to make a oyster shell candle holder 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.

If you can't find oyster shells on the beach, you can either go and slurp a few dozen oysters at a restaurant and take them home, or pick up a bag from a local oyster factory -that is how this Oyster Shell Mirror was created.
