Shell ‘necklace’ for a vase
Tags: beach shell vase. decorating with shells, shells, vases
Couldn’t think of what ELSE to call it, so it’s a necklace for now!
Dollar Tree vase I’ve had sitting around for SOME time, awaiting a project. ANY kind of vase or even just a JAR would work for this application. Just need an indented area for the necklace to be attached. Shells came from DT also.
Next cut LOTS of shorter strips of the jute. You’ll be gluing a shell to EACH end of this and it will fold in half at the neck of your vessel. How long or short you want to make these pieces is up to you; as well as how varying you want the lengths to be. Put a good blob of glue into each shell, then insert your jute. Lay flat and let dry overnight.
I couldn’t get a pic of the next step because it requires both hands. Pick up the ends of your long piece of jute from the position shown above. This will DOUBLE your shelled jute pieces over. Tie the longer jute piece around the neck of your vase; double knot and cut off the excess.
