Seashell Tree

Necessary materials and equipment: - Plastic cone-shaped glass with a leg or cardboard cone, - natural material (shells of different sizes, starfish, colored pebbles, sea pebbles), - decorative material (colored glass, beads , chains, etc.), - glue-gun and glue sticks, - shine nail polish or shine hairspray. On the eve of the New Year, I would like to please my loved ones with something either enjoyable. I propose to make a Christmas tree with my own hands from shells. Without such a Christmas tree you can not do it if you are hosting a New Year party in a marine style. This tree will be the queen of the holiday. So, let's start. 1. Prepare the necessary material: wash the shells and stones if necessary and dry.

2.If you can not find a suitable form a plastic wineglass, you can make a cone of cardboard, folding it with a kulk and gluing the edges together. Then trim the extra tail. Shells are sorted by size.Starting from below with a glue gun, we start to stick shells on the cone. I used river double shells, there are similar and sea ones.

For the bottom row we use larger shells, then the size goes to descending. We seal the rows of shells tightly together. Adhesive should not be regretted, since the shells are quite heavy, it is necessary to glue in all contiguous surfaces. Gradually, row after row is built up a pyramid. On the upper tip we glue a piece of a triangular-shaped shell. You can use several fragments, gluing them together. At the top, glue the starfish (if there is no star, you can glue a beautiful shell). Then decorate the place of gluing with smaller shells. And now the most enjoyable stage is decorating. For this we use everything that is in the bins. These are various beads, colored pebbles, glass and other. Glue the decorations to your liking. You can withstand a single color scheme, and you can make a multi-colored Christmas tree.In some places you can add shine to shells with nail polish with glitter, or sprinkle the entire tree with glitter hair spray.

The next step is making the legs for the Christmas tree. To do this, you can use any high cover or something in the form of a cylinder, pasting it with small shells or pebbles. I used three large shells of the same size. After washing and drying, glue these shells together with a large amount of glue, because they will have to withstand a fairly heavy tree. Glue is used very strong or glue gun. We give a good dry glue.

For a stronger connection, glue a cardboard circle on the bottom of the Christmas tree that is slightly larger than the base of the spruce cone You can do without it. We apply a large amount of glue on the upper part of the stalk, and apply glue to the base of the tree (on cardboard or on seashells).We connect the two parts together. Leave in this position until completely dry. After we admire our work and put it on the most prominent place in the house.
