Best Glue for Attaching Seashells to Wood for Outdoor Decor?

A hot glue gun works good when applying seashells to plywood, but if you live in the hot south, you can't use it on anything outside during the summer months because the sun gets the glue hot enough to loosen its hold and, one by one, the shells begin to fall off. What type of adhesive should I use on outdoor decor?

J.B. Weld glue is the most tolerable in the heat.Water based adhesives do the job well.

I live in the tropics and make a lot of shell decorations for the yard and home. I know what you are talking about and the only glue that actually works well for me is epoxy. I have some shell mirrors that are in the outside bathroom for over 15 years, and other shell decorations that are in direct sunlight all year round. I would invest in the epoxy glue if you want it to last any time at all.

The heat in the south in summer will melt the glue

I have pretty good luck using Matte Medium or Modge Podge glue.

I would try superglue, bondix, or maybe even wood glue
