Baauji was throwing away a fish tank from the hotel as it was old and difficult to clean. So I requested him not to throw away the sea-shells and send them to me instead. Using those sea-shells, I made a few lovely decorative items. So here are a few tips on how you can use the shells as a decorative item.
If the sea-shells look old and faded, you can paint them in a colour of your choice. After coloring it, place it under the sun to dry. Then take a glass jar and fill it with the newly painted sea-shells. You could also fill half the jar with sand along with the sea-shells. After filling the jar with sand and sea-shells, put some flowers in it and place it on the center of the table. You will get a beautiful exquisite center piece for the table.
You can even turn your simple plain looking mirror into a gorgeous delicate piece of art. Just stick the painted sea-shells on the two opposite corners of the mirror in a nice pattern or make a frame around the mirror. And your mirror will get a new look. You can use the shells to create many such decorative pieces.
