We’re getting so close to summer… longer days, warm weather and for our family, days spent at the beach. I love adding beachy elements to my decor. My kiddos love collecting seashells and I love incorporating them within our home. Today I’m thrilled to be joining some other seashell lovin’ bloggers to share with you some Seashell Crafts! I’ve got a fun craft that makes for a gorgeous beachy decor project… a DIY Seashell Seahorse.
Here’s the supplies I used:
- a burlap canvas… I got one with some white paint already on it
- a bag of assorted seashells
- a strong glue
- a outline of the shape you want to make printed on paper
I placed the paper with the drawing of the seahorse on top of the canvas and used painter’s tape to hold it in place. Then I used a pencil and pressed firmly, tracing over the line a few times till I could the outline.
Then having fun filling in the seahorse with shells attaching them with your glue.
I started by tracing the outside, working in sections to let it set up and dry.
Then I filled in the interior.
I love how it turned out.
I love nautical elements and have beachy elements in my everyday decor… so this baby will stay out throughout the year.
Your options are endless too… I think I’m going to make a collection… since I’ve got a ton of shells still. I’m going to do a shell, crab, palm tree, etc… with various sized canvases.
Now there’s a lot more great seashell crafts to check out today through Wednesday…
