Mirror Decoration with Shells, pearls & Stones

Shell crafts are always beautiful & unique. Once in my childhood I saw some home decore items made with shells & I wonder from where I can get these raw/natural shells, as I am living far away from any beach area, my location is near hills & beach is on the other side of our country where I am from. Well see what I have got..I receive some beautiful fresh water shells from the beach of Cadiz, Spain from my blogger friend Maria, she lives in a beach area. I were excited to try something fun with these pretty shells. So Here today I have done something !!

For the making of this mirror, you will need to have..

Transparent Frame Base, Mirror, Stones, Shells, Pearl beads, Hot glue, Transparent glue( mod podge/ movileth german glue)

First of all I paste the mirror with the transparent base, at first I was trying to fix it straight but it was looking well this way!

Then I paste a thick layer of transparent glue at the sides of mirror. Then fix little stones over it. and fill the other space totally!

When the glue will get dry, then you will need to fix shells over the mirror sides, fixing shells thereĀ  is not an easy thing, because of their shape, as they were empty from the back side so I use hot glue for pasting these well. So be patient & careful while doing this.

Then I fix some pearl beads of off white color with every shell, You can remove the hot glue spots from the mirror easily with the help of any knife/paper cutter tip..

And its Done..I am happy with the end result, as everyone at home was admiring my effort a lot.. So I can say I made something really good..haha,, there is always a quick feedback system by my family! how fun!

well I haven’t yet decided where to hang it or place it now! my room is already having a big mirror, and there are many wall arts already, so a new wall art will be looking messy here! As it is having some heavy weight so I think it would be better as a shelf piece..but not bad as a wall hanging. let’s see..

I hope you liked my today’s creativity & tutorial, I bet if you will be trying this, you will like it. So if you are going to try any of my crafts, don’t forget showing your effort to me.. I would love to see as well as featuring your inspiration at my website. so let me know..

have a wonderful day!..Happy crafting..

Khadija ~
