Easy Seashell Topiary

By: Kathleen George for STYROFOAM Brand Foam

In two easy steps you can have a decorative piece in your home. Seashells are one of my favorite things to collect, well now I can actually make something out of them.

Materials:

  • STYROFOAM™ Brand Foam:
    • Cone, 15" x 5"
  • Assorted seashells, 5-10 cups
  • Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks

Steps:

  1. Use glue gun to attach framework of large shells over surface of foam cone. Place more shells near base and fewer near tip.
     
  2. Continue gluing shells to cone until surface is covered. If desired, glue several smaller shells near tip, over existing larger shells, to give abundant appearance.

I love this for nostalgia reasons.... When I was a kid someone made a cone tree with assorted pasta shapes, spirals and shells and spray painted it gold, added a multi colored glass bead garland, and a coffee can base for a Christmas decoration and I bought it for a quarter! This seashell project could be converted to a holiday decoration with a few pin sprigs here and there for whimsy! So pretty as it is, but it reminded me of my similar tree and so imlovemthis even more! Great instructions!

I will be making this! My daughter lives near the water and this will fit her decor perfectly. Thanks!
