I have a lot of shells and they sit in a glass jar, but lots of people find clever ways to decorate with their shells.
One idea is to use them as planters, and they don’t have to be huge to do so.
This is not your ordinary planter. No dirt is involved, so it stays neat and clean and takes up little space. A reader left this link (below) and I thought it was worth sharing with my crafty readers.
I remember working in a flower shop and one of our best selling items was a tiny jar full of “left over” flowers whose stems were broken and too short for an arrangement or regular vase. It was very inexpensive, but cute and people told us they liked them to give to elderly relatives and friends in nursing homes because they didn’t take up much space, but were pretty.
I imagine this shell planter would be useful for such a gift. Of course it would be cute just sitting around the house too.
