I have a lot of shells and I want to use them to decorate my bathroom. How do I use them is the question. My bathroom is like any other with a double vanity, luxurious fittings, a shower area, and shower curtains. There is a lot of space on the vanity where I can keep decorative pieces. What is any innovative way to use shells. Currently they are just in a glass kept near my sink.

I have tea light candles sitting in abalone shells.

I have filled the lids of recycled coffee jars (see here: http://www.moccona.com.au/public/products/classic-range/classic-dark-roast.aspx) with small shells because they look pretty. The jars hold a variety of things e.g. cotton balls, buds.

Shells with holes in them hang off earring hooks & hook up the lace curtains so the bottoms hang in scallops.

Plain shot glasses fit nicely into odd corners & look attractive filled with shells.

Hey Stitchwench. Thanks for the ideas. I really like the idea of having shit glasses filled with shells kept in the corner of a room. I think it will look nice. Also the shells on the curtains seem like a good idea. Let me try something with shells on my shower curtains.

I also came across this picture on the net where shells are stuck to the border of the bathroom mirror. That too looks really nice. Also shells glued to the glass that holds toothbrush. That would be a great idea too.

Hi selenavaz ,

I was on vacation in last summer, I had collected some shell with too many
different color and size, but now I'm confuse for where can I utilize them?..

I was wondering for handmade customized shell neckless but I'm not that much good in creative part Sad

So anybody have any suggestion for same?

I have stuck the shells on the border of the mirror in my bathroom, giving it a nice oceanic look. Also I have kept a vase with sand and some branches in them for decoration. This gives a cool pleasant theme to my bathroom. What more you could do with shells is stick it on a frame and make a nice photo frame out of it or on a small pot to make a good show piece. These are the easiest things I can think of.

Wow, this thread seems to be a good one (although most of them already are Wink ) with some great ideas for your home. Shells can be used in so many ways- even ordinary looking things can add so much of beauty to our mundane lives. That's the beauty and importance of crafts and craftsmanship.

I know someone who took a printer's tray and filled each space with 1 shell. She moved or took out some of the dividers so the bigger shells would fit. They're glued in place somehow so they don't fall out - the tray's hanging on the wall.
