I live near the beach and have tons of shells.  I found the silver seashells projects on Pinterest and once I painted them, I wondered what to do…  The smaller ones are perfect for magnets or even pushpins!  The larger ones are gorgeous just placed on display; however, I think they would make really cool planters or candles!

My son absolutely loved helping me make the shells shine.  We started with clean and dry shells and simply painted them with silver or gold metallic paint.  Once dry, we glued on some round magnets with Gorilla Glue.

Not much to it really and I think they make a great little gift with 3 or 4 in a box.
