I have made many seashell on wood projects with a product called "no more nails" from any hardware store, works great.

Yes. E6000 is excellent AND super strong. But, I suggest waterproofing the outside your wooden birdhouse first with an exterior paint or exterior polyurethane.

Thank you all for your input about gluing shells to a wood bird house. I will consider each idea and see what I come up with. Have a grand weekend!

Get a glue gun and hot glue sticks -- you can get each at most dollar stores. Its fast to use because it dries immediately.

I just googled outdoor glues and came up with tons. I personally love E-6000. Good luck!

I have made several project using seashells glued on wooden birdhouses. I use liquid cement for this and gluing other things on as well. These project have been made for several years and continue to be securely anchored. Sorry, I have no images to post with this idea.
