Seashell Picture Frame

I really enjoy collecting shells when I make it to the beach.  Here's a nice way to use them.

What you need:
  • Frame: I get some nice wood ones from Hobby Lobby that look like driftwood
  • Seashells
  • Hot glue gun
  • Clear coat, glossy
It's like a puzzle, use your shells to piece together what looks best.  The seashells hot glue really well to the frame.  I've had mine for 5 years and its survived 3 moves as well, with none of the shells coming  loose.  Once you have all your shells glued down, than use a glossy clear coat such as Modge Podge or what I have is a special gloss that's similar to what is used for pottery but doesn't need to be kilned.
