DIY Sea Shell Mirror

Sea Shell Mirror

Maybe you live close to the beach. Maybe not. Maybe you spend your free time daydreaming about being somewhere warm with your toes in the water and sand.

 Whether for your beach house in Malibu or simply your everyday home as a reminder Рturning an ordinary boring mirror into a mermaids dream is a simple and fun project.

I stumbled across a tutorial by the blonde lab blog which you can find here

But all you need to create this is a mirror of your choice (size and style), an array of sea shell’s in different sizes and colors and lots of hot glue!

A fun, unique idea also would be to spray paint your sea shells. Painting all the shells in a white or gray would give you the texture of the shells while keeping with a monochromatic white/gray/etc, color scheme.

You could also spray paint the shells in bright colors or create an ombre effect by creating a gradual change in tones like this beautiful mirror –
