PASTEL PAINTED SHELLS


Shell painting is such a fun and easy afternoon craft. I love it because it's so easy and it will always end up looking nice! It's a great alternative to painting rocks if you need something different!

We have so many shells left over from Ellie's Mermaid Party last year. I've been saving them and I finally decided that we should paint them. 

This is a super easy and fun project. We got our shells from a variety of places - dollar store, Michaels and Amazon. And if you're shell collectors from beach visits, this is a perfect thing to do with the ones you've been collecting.

Shells

WHAT TO DO

Step 1. Wash your shells in soapy water to make sure they are clean and ready to use.

Step 2. Get ready to paint them the shells!












I choose fun bright pastels, and loved how they turned out. We used pinks, peaches, yellow and mint. Mix and match...and don't forget you can always make your own colours using white to make softer shades.




After we were done, I put them in a clear glass container and let the girls put it in their room. It's so pretty and is making me so excited for summer!
