Make a Tropical Fish from Shells

I used a scallop shell and a couple of pistachio shells to make this tropical fish. You can add a magnet to the back and put it on your fridge to hold up your notes and drawings. Super cute!

Total Time: 35 minutes plus dry time

Yield: 1 fish

Supplies:

Steps:

  1. Paint the main part of the scallop shell with your base colour. Allow to dry.
  2. The 2 little triangles will be the fish's tail. Paint that in your 2nd colour. Allow to dry.
  3. Paint the outside of the pistachio shells the same colour as the tail. Allow to dry.
  4. Glue 1 pistachio shell to the side as a fin. Glue the other on top as as dorsal fin.
  5. Glue the gem or googly eye to the front.
  6. Use black paint to make eye details, a mouth, and some lines on the fins. Allow to dry.
