Seashell Angels Tutorial

By Alison_wood @midnight_eden
Getting to live in a warm, beachy climate has been a new experience for me this holiday. One of my favorite things to do each morning is to collect seashells, so I thought this craft might bring a little Florida breeze to your holiday decorating!1 Seashell Angels by Lady LucasMaterials you will need:
  • Seashells {both small and medium}
  • Hot glue
  • Thin permanent marker
  • Pink watercolor paint or watercolor marker
  • Light colored embroidery floss
  • Scissors

2. Carefully hot glue the two small shell wings onto the body. Next glue the medium shell to the body for the face. The whole process of hot gluing can be quite challenging because the pieces you are working with are miniature. Take your time, and remember to wait until the glue gun heats up for a few minutes to make sure everything sticks the first time ;)3 Seashell Angels by Lady Lucas

 

3. Snip a small loop of embroidery floss with sharp scissors and hot glue it to the back of your angel. Let dry completely before hanging.

4. Add a face to your angel with a black permanent marker. Cheeks can be added with a splash of watercolor or by using a pink watercolor marker.

 

5. Hang your seashell angels as ornaments on the Christmas tree, or tie them to packages. These delicate little ladies will bring a smile to all this December!
