Painting Sea Shells.

So me and my 2.5 yr old daughter our going to paint sea shells today. I have hundreds and I figured it would be something fun and messy to do togeter lol. My question is...what could we use the shells for when we're done painting them? Anyone have any cool creative ideas? They're mostly medium-large sized shells. Only have a handful of smaller ones.

  • Sounds like fun! Maybe get an unfinshed picture frame from Michael's and glue them around it? Or glue them on a wreath? Just walk around Michael's and get ideas.

  • I would put them around a mirror as a border or you can put them around a flower pot.

    Paint with glow in the dark paint and tape to ceiling.
    Glue onto sunglasses.
    Smoosh into concrete hand print stone.
    Hang a garland on head borad.
    Fill with wax and make candles.
    Hot glue onto glass cadle holder.
    Make (wine) markers if they have a hole already. Or childs plastic wine glass for water or juice :)
