I was window shopping this past weekend and got inspired to create some cute little seashell shadow boxes. I actually ended up making made 2 sets of these so one set is up for sale in my shop however, if you looking to create some on your own continue reading and enjoy!
3 Shadow Boxes
2 Colors of Paint
3 Big Seashells
Picture Frame Hooks
Hot Glue Gun
1) First I painted the shadow boxes. On my shadow boxes the stripe is a lighter color than the box so I painted a wide white stripe on the outside edge of the box and along the inside edge of the box. Once dry I used the painter tape to block off the area I wanted to keep white and with my darker color painted the rest of the box.
2) Once all three boxes were painted and dry I attached the picture hooks on the back. Depending on how you decide to display your boxes will determine if you need to do this step or not.
3) Next I cut out various sized squares of burlap and with the hot glue gun I layered them in no particular order on the back inside wall. Be sure I secure each piece of burlap before adding another piece and test this by hold the box upside down. The shells will be glued to the burlap and they can be heavy so you want to make sure the burlap is sturdy before attaching anything else to it.
4) All you have left now is to add the shells. Make sure you let the glue fully dry with the boxes laying down before you set them up for display.
