DIY Sea Shell Letters

I've been spending a lot of time on Pinterest lately. One thing I saw were these fab letters covered in shells and I knew I had to give making them a try! Our home is decorated with lots of lovely beach pictures and signs that I knew they would fit right in!

Here's a little step by step on how I made them!

Equipment used -
Mache letters. I used these from Hobbycraft.
Paint. I used 'Ice Cream' Autentico Chalk Paint, mainly because it was the only white paint I had in!
A glue gun.
Shells, beads, pearls and anything else you'd like to decorate your letters with! I got mine from Amazon.

I painted my letters in two coats of white paint and left to dry completely.

I placed on all of the shells to see which ones would fit where. Then, using the glue gun I stuck them down, as well as glued my fingers together briefly. 

I then left it all to dry and that's pretty much it! I'm so pleased with how they look!! 

You can add more shells, less shells, more beads, less beads, have it rustic and not sparkly, the choices are endless!!

Happy crafting!
