We are just back from the beach, and I’m helping a client plan a mermaid party (see my Custom Party Plans here), so I’m all about sand and surf inspiration right now. I made these little shell art pieces for my daughters’ beach themed room makeover, but think they’d also be fun on a dessert table or as a party craft.

It just doesn’t get any easier than this project. First you paint, then you glue. And it’s inexpensive, too — my total cost was $24.

Supplies

  • Shells (My most expensive shell was $4.)
  • 6″ square wood canvas (I got mine at WalMart for $3 each.)
  • E6000 glue (Find this in the WalMart craft aisle.)
  • Acrylic paint (I used Plaid’s “laguna.”)
  • Foam brush

Instructions

Paint your canvas. Let dry. Glue on shells. Let dry.  (See? I told you. Super easy.)
