How To Make An Oyster Shell Valentine’s Day Wreath
Valentine’s day is all about love. Oysters have a history of being a very romantic food to eat. (Interesting article.) What sweeter way than to make something for the people you love. That’s when I decided to make a Valentine wreath made from oyster shells for my family. I plan on displaying it in the family room so everyone can see it. If you want to create something special for your loved is it.
Supplies For Valentine’s Day Wreath
Oyster shells are sometimes hard to find. You can order the oyster shells from Amazon. You can also use small beach shells for the same look.

- Glue stick
Step 1: Clean the oyster shells
Pick out oyster shells that are the same size. Make sure they are relatively flat. Then put them in a solution of one part water and one part bleach or white vinegar. Let sit for a few hours. Brush off any particles of dirt. Let them dry for the day.
Step 2: Glueing the oyster shells.
Glue the oyster shells all the way around the edge of the heart. Do not glue the oysters randomly on the wreath. The key is to pick a relatively flat oyster shell that is similar in size. The big ones are too heavy for the wreath. Once you have finished gluing the oysters on the edge of the wreath. Start adding the shells inside.
Step 3: Glueing the oyster shell inside the heart shape.
Make sure that each oyster shell is clean from any debris when glueing them down on another shell, otherwise they won’t stick.
Now that the oysters are all glued to the heart shape particleboard. Let them dry for a few hours before hanging on the wall or adding a pretty bow.
I loved the way my Oyster shell valentine wreath turned out. I even added a big red bow perfect for Valentine’s Day.
