I found some shells in my garage (who knows when I collected them!) and I thought their shape would be perfect for a Thanksgiving project. Supplies: Supplies: Clam Shells (I used 3), a piece of driftwood, gold spray paint, vanilla bath salts, small candles, large leaves (real or faux) and a piece of lace or ribbon. You may also want to use hot glue for the lace.
