I collected many seashells when I went to Spain?

LostLoca asked:

…and I want an idea of how to creatively display them. Some ideas I already have are to create a collage, spell out España with the shells, use them to border picture frames…etc. At my home, I already have cement board and cement glue; a couple of years ago I cut out a fish-shaped cement board and took seashells, seaglass, and rocks from Quebec and glued them onto the board. Any creative suggestions are welcomed!!

    when i was in jamica i had our picture blown up and i glued the sheels around the frames…we also have a salt water fish tank so i put a bunch in there….the rest i put in different sized glass jars and put them in a small arrangement…

    Here’s an extremely SIMPLE idea: Get a really pretty bowl and put them all in the bowl. Just display them like that. I just did it, and it looks great! OR as someone else said, different sized glass jars filled with seashells would make a nice display.

    I dont’ know how many you have but I would make a frame around a mirror.

    If you have a wooden coffee table or end table:
    Make a thin frame for the table made out of wood - stained to match table if you want - glue the shells onto the table in any design you want. Then spread sand around the rest of the table. Get glass cut to fit the top of the table and glue it onto the frame. makes for a wonderful display and you can still use the table without moving the shells.

    You can glue them on a box, or similar.

    I’ve also seen shells used in mosaics.

    You can also make a frame (or use a raised picture frame), arrange the shells in a pretty way, and pour clear resin over it. It will dry to a glass-like finish and permanently lock the shells inside. You can then hang it on a wall or use it as a serving tray like to bring drinks to a coffee table. It would be really easy to attach handles too.

    Hope this helps,

    Collect some sand from the beach and place the sand into a large flower vase._ short of like a fish bowl shape, then place the shell on top of the sand. You may also want them to show around the vase two.
