‘Tis the season to make beach-y holiday decor! With the abundance of seashells I have collected over the years, I figured I would put them to use instead of just have them sitting in a jar. A seashell Christmas tree sounded like the perfect thing to make. Plus I had all of the materials laying around already.
Using a knife, cut off styrofoam so that it is in the shape of a cone to represent a Christmas tree.
Glue the top of the shells to the styrofoam starting at the bottom and layering shells on top, working your way up. Try to fill in the gaps so that the styrofoam doesn’t show through too much.
Place a shell on top (or a starfish would work best). I drew a star on my shell with a sharpie. And that’s it! You could make this tree a few different ways. You could place the shells on it with the insides facing out, you could make them all stick out further, you could mix it up with different colored shells, or you could spray paint it after! Any way you do it, it’s kind of hard to mess up!
