Seashell bracelet

My upcoming trip to the ocean have occupied my mind completely. Ocean, ocean, ocean, that's all I can think of right now and projects with seashells like the one we are going to talk about today or the ones that I have done in the past make me feel that I am already there.
OK. let's begin! Materials needed: the hard cardboard core of the masking tape,
thin rope, seashells, white paint optional.

Paint the cardboard circle in white (you can easily skip this step). Let it dry.

Start wrapping the rope of your choice around, making sure it sits very tight. You can use hot glue during this process to make sure that the rope will not move in the future.

Apply seashells of your choice, using strong craft glue (in my case, I've used Costume and Mask Glue by Beacon)
let it dry for at least 12 hours and you are done. I don't know how about you, but it reminds me of my upcoming vacation (did I already said that before? ha ha ha)


  1. This is awesome! My mom has sea shells everywhere and she's allergic to metal, so this will be perfect for her!
