Step 1: Spread the individual shells out on a drop cloth and spray paint them. The flowers are very difficult to paint if you assemble them first.

Step 2:
Assemble the flowers using hot glue.

Start by picking out three shells and putting hot glue on the right side of the inside of each shell (or left side if you are a lefty).

Assemble by tucking the outside left of one shell into the inside right of the other shell. In other words, make them overlap.

Add more shells until flowers reach the desired size.
