Metallic Sea Shell Christmas Trees


Metallic Sea Shell Christmas Trees from At The Picket Fence

 What is it with metallic that makes us love it so much? Is it that extra little bling? Is it the extra little something special that it adds to everyday objects? Maybe I just have a fascination with shiny objects, which could be a whole other problem entirely. grin!

Krylon’s Metallic Spray Paints has given us the ability to make just about anything shine these days…and sea shells are no exception! I first saw a trio of sea shell Christmas trees at Joss and Main, and let me tell you they went quick! I decided if I wanted a set of my own, I would just need to make them and you can make some too! Here’s what you need:

and here’s how you make them:

See how simple they are! Just a little glue, some shells and some Krylon Brushed Metallic Paint! Total cost for all three trees..$13.00!
