E6000 - Rated 5 out of 5 used as a adhesive, that gives a more permanent hold .You can purchase at many retailers like, Wal-mart, home improvement stores, Amazon, Michael's etc. Use this and on any other projects!

Thanks so much for the tip. I used it and it looked great. Didn't make a mess, either.

Hi, I appreciate your time replying to my inquiry. To tell you the truth, I do not think I would be able to do good job of drilling the shells.

Good luck to anybody who would like to try this! Thanks a lot.

If you don't want to destroy the velvet with some super bonding glue I would suggest that you go to a craft store and buy a fabric glue that will not harm the velvet you are working on. In cases like this here on the island we sew the sells to the material so it does not damage the material. You might consider drilling a small hole in each shell and just sewing it in place. It will look a lot better and last a lot longer if the piece is to be worn or displayed.

Glue guns are pretty good. They will have things adhere for fairly long.

If you don't want to use that, Modge Podge works well as well.

I use E6000 for things like this. Very sturdy. Second option is glue gun but it can be more obvious, the glue.
