Don't you just love it when you knockoff something rather expensive! I'm talking about a $629.00 Seashell Crystal Hurricane Votive I saw online at Frontgate.
It was an easy make and just about free for me. I had everything in my stash.
- Seashells collected by my friend Helen (she gifted them to me when she moved)
- Glass tile sample
- A glass vase that once held forced tulips
- Hot glue gun
Make sure the glass container is clean and free of oils by wiping with alcohol after washing.
Glue on the larger seashells first and fill in with the smaller ones. I used Styrofoam blocks to keep the glass from moving, but then discovered using a small towel was much better.
I had glass tile samples that I used to imitate the crystals on the original one.
It was almost like doing a puzzle - moving the shells around for the best fit before gluing on.
The small shells seemed to fit perfect on the rim.
Decorated with treasures from the sea!
This would be gorgeous anywhere in your home!
So get creative making your own!
Take a little time to enjoy
