I love anything made from an oyster shell. This DIY oyster shell mirror is pretty easy to do. Not everything is easy. My last project was an Oyster Shell Candle Holder that was quite challenging. I am lucky I live where there are many oyster shells to find and you can buy them by the bay full at the local landscape place. I found a mirror in our attic that would make a perfect seashell wall mirror. The frame was wide to lay the oysters pretty. Where to buy oyster shells for crafts or any project depends where you live. I live in coastal carolina so there are many places I can pick them up. Sometimes you can buy them online.
- 50 Oyster shells
- Ceramic tile adhesive
Step 1: Clean the oyster shells
To clean oyster dry shells soak in a mixture of cider vinegar and half water.
Step 2: Sort the shells.
Sort your shells by size of the frame, so the shells lay flat. you may need a mixture of flat small and larger oyster shells
Step 3: Adhesive
Make sure you cover the mirror with paint tape. To attach shells add the adhesive to the frame thick and press the shell on it. Add one shell at a time all around the frame of the mirror. Let dry for 24 hours.
Will you be making one.
