See Beauty in Seafood

Vidya at What’s Ur Home Story and her husband love seafood.  After a lunch of clams one day, Vidya realized that those empty clam shells had great decorating potential.

Washing the shells was the first step in this project.  Once they were dry Vidya began gluing them in layers around a circular wood base that she had leftover from another craft project.  She made sure to leave room in the center for a pillar candle.  For added glimmer in the candlelight, Vidya added glitter on the edges of the shells.  What a lovely way to bring nature indoors!
