Hello!  I'm a new member, so if I'm doing this wrong, just poke me and I'll fix it. Smiley  I also hope that this idea hasn't been posted ad nauseum (sorry, if it has!)

Anyway, last January, my extended family took a trip to the beach and I collected seashells while I was there.  Inspiration struck while I was looking through them a few days ago and I came up with seashell angel ornaments.  Not only are they darling (in my not-so-humble opinion!) but they're a lasting reminder of a fabulous vacation with family!

 

 





So, outside opinions?  Do they look like angels or is it so late I no longer have accurate perception?  Smiley

Thank you so much!  They were really easy to do, too (though I advise against burning yourself with hot glue.  It did nothing to add to the angels! Wink )

Those are precious, did you put anything along the edge of the big shells or were they just naturally lined like that?

I went around the edges with a gold paint pen since when they were glued together, the "body" sort of blended into the "wings".  Also, I like how it coordinates with the halo and the ribbon!
