Coastal Seashell Mirror DIY

SUPPLIES:

framed mirror

hot glue gun and glue sticks

seashells

stiff paintbrush

straight razor

window cleaner

cloth or paper towel

INSTRUCTIONS:

Collect and Clean Seashells. If shells were collected from the beach, rinse thoroughly and allow to dry. If you aren't planning a trip to the coast, shells can be purchased at craft stores. Make sure to have enough small and medium sized shells to cover the entire mirror frame.

Attach Shells. Preheat hot glue gun. Working from inside of mirror frame, apply glue in small sections and press shells into hot glue. Hold in place until glue cools. Shells can be placed at random or in a pattern.

Cover Entire Frame. Continue to apply glue in small sections, pressing various sized shells into glue. Use small shells to fill in gaps between larger ones. Save large, decorative shells to apply last, so they will be most visible. Tip: A flat frame provides a smoother gluing surface for shells, but a decorative frame will give a fuller look.

Clean Frame and Mirror. Glue guns tend to leave strings of glue behind. To remove these, gently sweep them off using a stiff paint brush. Use a straight razor to remove glue from mirror surface. Wipe down mirror with window cleaner and hang.
