Seashell Jewelry Holder DIY

DIY sea shell crafts are a great way to create home decor but also a chance to bring back vacation memories. Every seashell is a piece of art and you can paint them to go with your room decor and use your favorite colors. It’s an easy quarantine craft for kids.

I have collected seashells for many years and have accumulated a ridiculous amount! I love them so much and love to be able to use them in my home decor for some coastal decor inspiration.

Triple thick:
Matte varnish:
Metallic blue paint:
Copper paint:
White paint:
Hot glue:
White glue:

Wood candlesticks:

Here is the video tutorial, so you can see exactly how I made them:



1.  I collected my items, which were shells and wood candlesticks.  You can use glass candlestick from the dollar store as an option.  

2.  I used a metal nail file to smooth any rough and jagged edges.

3.  I used a pretty periwinkle blue, with a little white added, to paint the insides of the shells.

5.  I mixed copper and white for the candlesticks.

6.  I painted the candlesticks.

7.  Once dry, I used matte varnish to seal them.

8.  I used Triple thick to give the shells a high gloss, protective finish.

9.  I used a combination of white glue and hot glue to secure the shell onto the candlestick. 

Here is how they look from the top.  Nice and glossy with a beauty feel!

Perfect to hold my jewelry by the kitchen sink, in the bathroom, or on my nightstand!

They are easy to customize to fit your home decor!  

Thanks for stopping by!  Remember:  Life’s too short not to shimmer, so grab your glue gun and your glitter!™  Stay safe!
