The description of Craft shells

You want something more fun and easy shell crafts, you can make candles. You can use small shells like Carrier Shells, Horn Shells , Dove Shells or Augers. Buy some cheap pillar candles. Use the tip of your hot glue gun to melt a spot on the candle and press a shell into the wax. You just have to hold it until the wax starts to set. You can do the bottom half of the candle this way and then tie a piece of raffia ribbon or any fancy lace around the center. This makes for a nice shell crafts candle piece to be displayed in the guest area of your house.

Shell crafts with the river or clam shells you can clean them with soap and water. Then use a dremel to cut them into the shape you need. Use 600 grit waterproof sandpaper to polish the outside and inside of the shell. Polish or sand them underwater and this works very good to bring out the shine. After they are smoothed by the sand paper, take a dremel buffing pad and some jewelers rough and buff it to a very high gloss finish. This brings out more color than you would ever imagine .

Choose a frame which keeps the shells glued well .Choose the color of the frame in such a way to project the bulk seashells decoration .Use bigger shells like clams for decorating the corners . Use smaller shells like Carrier Shells, Horn Shells , Dove Shells or Augers to fill the inner or outer rim of the frame. You can also bead the shells if you want to cover the frame across its length and breadth. Make smaller holes on the shell by using dremel or needle and then glue the bead slowly over the frame. This saves time and if some shells fall out you can glue it again as its now part of the bead. While drilling hole , make sure you are not breaking the shell.
