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!
So add a little more bling to your holidays, and create your own trio of Metallic Sea Shell Christmas Trees!

How fun – now I feel like I’m sipping a pina colada while a cute pool boy is spritzing me with Evian!
Love the starfish toppers – these trees rock (or should I say they shell)!

What a great idea, Heather! Love that you blinged them out, too! I’m a sucker for anything seashells right now. And hey, for $13 bucks I could take my savings from Joss and Main and blow it on more rum for Kelly’s pina colada party!
Great job, I love the shell trees, such a brilliant idea. Have a great day!
I saw it on facebook before I made it to my blog reader. I LOVE THEM!!! They look great!
How pretty and unique are these… Heather, I Love them and the color choices. These would actually be perfect in our house.. 🙂 Since it is still like Summer here 🙂
Have a great day.
These are so cute Heather…they reminded me of a homemade wreath from when I was little that was made with spray painted elbow noodles, and shells. Lets just say your idea is waaaay prettier 😉
I would have never thought to spray paint those shells like that….how pretty!~ Love those colors too. I am so happy you shared this with the Holiday copy cat party….I thank you:)
Love this idea so cute!!! Thank you for sharing!
These are lovely, Now I have a new idea for all my seashells.
Super cute idea! Love the colors you used and love the starfish topper!
Perfect for a coastal Christmas project. Thx for sharing. Heather
