DIY Shell Wall Hanging

If you’ve been following me for a while, you may know that I have a slight shell obsession. Recently I opened an Etsy shop to sell my shell creations, so it may come as no surprise to know that I have A LOT of shells in my house. The last few times I have gone shell hunting, I have looked for shells that already had holes in them so I could make a shell wall…

You can check out all the other bloggers projects at the bottom of this post. A few weeks ago I decoupaged some shells.

NOTE:  I assure you these sand dollars were not alive when I took them from the beach. …

Broken Sand Dollar Project

The last 2 times we’ve been to the beach we’ve found a TON of washed up sand dollars (already dead), due to the terrible red tide we had.  They even talked about it in the Naples Daily News (although this article is saying it may not have been due to the red tide).  https://www.naplesnews.com/story/news/environment/2018/07/16/thousands-sand-dollars-found-dead-beach-bonita-springs-barefoot-florida/786955002/ They were all different sizes.  Some as small as a dime and some as big as 4 or 5 inches across.…
