If anyone of you has a hobby and like to create, you should try your hand at starting a business on etsy, if you haven't yet. It helps you to continue to be creative after you have created for you and your home and gives another purpose to create.
I have been drawn to using seashell for my holiday decorations since we moved to coastal area. It's funny, before I moved to a beach community, I never thought of using shells for my projects… Now, I can't stop using them… I love working with shells, their beautiful natural shapes and size can be worked into some many things. Here are a few decorations I've been making for my etsy shop along with for my home.
I made this seashell Christmas tree by gluing small white shells and rhinestones to a styrofoam cone. The star on top is a real starfish wrapped with tiny rhinestones.
These sand dollars were painted and glittered. Added a little rhinestones for a little more sparkle.
These flat scallop shells are perfect in its natural state, added a metal angel to hang from.
More bling, you gotta have the bling! I love using abalone shells, I love their iridescent quality they take on a different color at every angle.
I hope you can stop by my etsy shop and also check out some of their great shops. If you haven't already started a shop on etsy, maybe it will be a new venture for the upcoming year.
Thank you for stopping by!
