Wooden Fish and Seashells Hanging Decoration

Just a few collected seashells from a day at the beach combined with wood scraps are all you need to create this summer decoration for the home.



Wooden Fish and Seashells Hanging Decoration 1

For this project you will need:

- 4 or 6 mm plywood
- scrollsaw
- seashells
- 4 mm drill bit to drill the holes in the base for the legs
- twine for hanging
- raffia for embellishing

Craft Pattern:


Fish Template






1. Print your pattern out and create as many fish as you like. Saw these out and paint them brown and beige. Once dry, dry brush the edges with the opposite color (beige for brown and brown for beige). Let them dry and then drill a hole in the top and bottom of each fish.
2. Drill a hole carefully in each of the seashells (top and bottom).
3. Use twine and add the seashells and fish by alternating them and tying a knot under each hole to keep them from sliding down the twine if necessary. Once the amount on each line is full, tie raffia between the elements to add a wild touch to the decoration.
