Seashell Balls

If you are someone who cannot resist collecting seashells when on summer holiday, then this project is a lovely way to use some of them and at the same time have decorative objects to bring the beach feeling into your home.



Maritime Craft - Seashell Balls 1

For this project you will need:

- styrofoam balls about 10 - 15 centimeters in size (depending on how large or small you want your balls to be)
- small seashells that you have collected and cleaned (the smaller and flatter the shells, the easier they are to layer)
- hot glue gun


1. Clean the seashells in hot sudsy water with a scrub brush to remove any dirt and then place them on a towel to dry.
2. Dab hot glue on the rim of a shell and press it onto the styrofoam ball.
3. Keep adding shells in the same manner and layer them over previous shells turning them in different directions if necessary.
4. Continue until the entire ball is covered.
