DIY Oyster Shell Garland Centerpiece
A few years ago I made a few oyster shell candle holders. Check it out here. I had collected tons of them in my own community where I live. So I have plenty to make all kinds of projects. I thought instead of the traditional holiday garland I try something unique. So I headed to my oyster shell stash picked out about 15 large ones. If you are interested in making one? Keep reading.! You can purchase oysters usually at places that sell stone and concrete but mostly in the South. If you don’t have any close by you can purchase them at amazon.

How To Make A Oyster Shell Garland Centerpiece
Step1: Lay out all the pine clipping along the center of the table. Make sure you lay down so there are spots that are clear to lay the oyster shells and candles.
2. Scatter the oyster shells over the pine needles. Make sure they are nice and white. You can clean them with bleach, vinegar or lemon juice. Make sure you use one part water and one part cleaning solutions.
3. Add two non-flame large candles on each side of the pine needles. Another idea is two scatter a bunch of smaller candles everywhere would also look pretty nice.
4. In the center of the garland, I added my large coral for that added dramatic look. There are so many things you can do to give it more dimension. Add mini lights for a dramatic look.
