Sigh. Summer's fading fast.
Which means it's time to start thinking fall and school. Before you get the chills, how can you hang onto summer for a little longer?
Seashells, naturally. Why not turn one of your old mirrors or pictures frames into a beautiful reminder of your warm weather days. There's nothing better to lift your spirits than the thoughts of fun in the sun.
Here's what you'll need:
- A framed mirror
- Craft glue or a hot glue gun
- A paint brush
- White paint
- Seashells of various kinds and sizes, make sure you have enough for the project.
Paint the frame white and then let it dry.
Place the larger shells on the frame first, then fill in with the smaller ones. Apply the shells with a hot glue gun, or the craft glue. Hint: Applying the craft glue to the shells with a paintbrush makes it easier to be precise on uneven contours.
. Let it dry.
You can hang the mirror using a basic picture hook or lean it on top of a dresser, on a table in a hallway, or anywhere else you would like to see a seascape.
This is the perfect antidote to the late-summer wilt you may be feeling.
