Easy 'Beach' Decor - DIY a Shell Jar...

Beach Style Decor
Bring the beach into your bathroom decor 
with a simple jar of shells or a ball of shells.
Both are very easy to make.
And also a great project for the kids to create for gifts.
Today I am showing you how to DIY the shell jar.
But I'll share how to create the ball further through the post.

Shell Craft
 You will need a selection of shells in various shapes sizes and colours.

 A jar with a lid.
I'll be recycling a coffee jar.
Scrub the jar clean and remove any printed writing with a steel pad and soapy water.

 While the jar is drying,
spread the shells onto newspaper outside in a well ventilated area.

 Spray with a gloss varnish.
This brings out the beautiful colours in the shells.
Leave to dry.

 Put shells of your choice into the jar.
Large first then smaller ones.

Place lid on Jar.

 To make the ball of shells like this one that is sitting on the French style urn,
all you need is lots of shells, a polystyrene ball in size of choice, a glue gun, and gloss spray varnish.
Step one: glue shells all over the poly ball.
Step two: Remove excess glue strings.
Step three: Spray with clear gloss.
And that is it...
you have created a shell ball.
