Welcome to this week’s weekly craft! I know many of my lovely readers have been to the beach this summer, and you may want something to do with all of those pretty shells just sitting around!
Skill level: 1
You will need:
Seashells (preferably the white ones)
Watercolor paints (I just used cheap ones from Walmart)
Lets make it!
Wash and dry your seashells to remove any sand or dirt, if you don’t like the smell of your seashells then after washing them drop them into a bucket filled with bleach. Wash and dry them again after wards
Set up a nice workspace and begin to paint the shells
3. Let the shells dry completely.
4. After the shells are dry paint the top of them with Mod- Podge
5. Once the shells are dry from their first coat paint them again with Mod-Podge. Paint the entire shell, not just the top. Let dry.
Here are some pics of my finished painted shells!
I hope you enjoyed! You could paint on some outdoor Mod-Podge and use these in your garden!
To understand about this you need to know the story:
A few years ago my older cousins Sarah and Stephanie gave my sister and I American Girl Dolls. I got Samantha, and my sister got Caroline. I still have Samantha and my sister still has Caroline. (I will show you a pic of Samantha next week)
So anyway, my Grandma found a small what looked like a mini old-fashioned school set in her one of her bedrooms where cousins, and other family can stay when they are traveling or visiting.
It turned out to be that Sarah had forgot to give me that school set for my doll Samantha.
Interesting story right?!
This school set is from before Samantha was retired so it is very special to me!
