There are also other a bit more unusual ways to use seashells. For example, put them in a jar and make a lamp. Here's what you need: a Mason jar, a drill with a large drill bit and a lamp kit. Start by drilling a hole in the lid, large enough for the light socket to get through. Add the jar ring and the decorative base over the end of the socket, then add the lid and the washer and nut. Attach the lid to the jar. The seashells go in the jar and they're purely decorative.
