How to create a seashell window wall art in 3 easy steps using seashell and an old window.
There is nothing like summer at the beach. Some of the beautiful coastal shells I have found at my beach in Hilton Head Island! Looking for seashell crafts. I have collected hundreds of small whites seashells from the beach! I found this old window at a thrift store. I thought it would look great painting it turquoise and gluing lots of seashells on it. Keep summer alive with this cute seashell window wall art
- Old window
- Turquoise oil-based paint
- 4 large seashells
- Glue gun
Step 1: Prime the window
It was a beautiful day and it was perfect to start preparing the window for painting. Clean off any debris from the window and cover the glass with blue tape. Take white primer paint and cover all the wood.
Step 2: Paint the Window
Once the primer dries you can use any color of oil-based turquoise paint. I hand brushed the paint making it easy to get into the crevices.
Step 3: Glue the seashells
Start by adding the seashells one by one on the cleaned window surface making sure there is just enough space in between each one. Make sure it looks even. At every four corners glue one of the big shells. Once you have positioned all the seashells, get that handy glue gun and start gluing each one carefully. Glue guns are tricky so don’t burn those fingers. Using gloves is wise.
After the seashell dry you can hang it on a wall or against the wall on a table.
I don’t know about you, but I always want to keep the warmth of summer going as long as possible. So bringing these seashells to my home keeps the summer alive all year-long.
