It’s that time of year again! When the weather starts getting chilly and spirits are high as we get ready for the holiday season. One of the traditions that we all love is decorating our homes. It’s always so much fun to add some festive cheer throughout our living spaces. One great way to do this is by creating DIY Christmas ornaments. This year we want to spice things up a bit and add some beachy joy to our decor. In this post, we’re going to show you how to create the perfect DIY Seashell Christmas Ornaments for your tree.

Step 1: Collect Your Seashells

Start by collecting your seashells. Depending on where you live, you may be able to find some on the beach, otherwise, they are commonly found at craft stores or online. Look for shells that are small enough to be hung on a tree but large enough to see the details of the shell.

Step 2: Clean Your Seashells

The next step in creating your DIY Seashell Christmas Ornaments is to clean your shells. Use soapy water and a brush to gently scrub the dirt off of the shells. Make sure they are completely dry before moving on to the next step.

Step 3: Add Some Glitz

To add some sparkle to your seashell ornaments, use a clear glue and sprinkle some glitter on the front of the shells. Make sure to cover the entire front of your shells, allowing them to dry completely before moving on to the next step.

Step 4: Add Your Hook

Once the glitter has dried, it’s time to attach your hooks. Using a hot glue gun, attach a small hook to the back of each seashell. Make sure the hook can hold the weight of the shell.

Step 5: Hang Your Ornaments

The final step is to hang your beautiful seashell ornaments on your Christmas tree or anywhere else you see fit! The perfect addition to any coastal themed holiday decorations.
