Shabby Chic Shell Ornaments

I have a collection of shells that were from a box of pre-made stuffed shells entree. After the filling was eaten, I put the shells through the dishwasher to use at a later date. The shells cleaned up nicely and are in perfect shape! These shells could be used for many projects. I decided to make them shabby chic for tree and decorative pieces throughout our home.

Total Time: 2 hours

Yield: 12



  1. Lay clean shells on a flat surface and spray paint gold. Dry.
  2. Flip over. Paint and allow to dry.
  3. To add a little more sparkle, I added pink glitter craft paint.
  4. Count out 12 beads on the string; cut. This makes the perfect loop for hanging. With 1 of the shells, add hot glue at the top, begin by gluing 1 bead, then again at the other end, gluing side by side to form a loop.
  5. Using more glue on the bottom of the loop, take your second shell and place on top, to sandwich the beads and press the shells together.
  6. Allow to dry. They are now ready to hang on the tree or a display stand.
