My mom was here a few weeks ago and brought with her an old mirror in a gold frame and lots and lots of sea shells and we went to town creating a new mirror for my powder room!

We played around laying out the sea shells in different ways. First we tried just using one type of shell but it was too plain. So then we added smaller shells and pointy shells all mixed them all together.

We ended up layering them on top of each other. Using larger shells mixed with small shells and tucking in the pointy shaped shells. If you look at other sea shell mirrors that you can buy they kind of do the same thing. Rather than using just one type of shell they use lots of different shaped sea shells.

We just used a hot glue gun to attach them onto the old frame.

Once we hung up the mirror we noticed a few areas where we needed to add in a few more shells to make it look more full.

Mom and I had a great time working on this project. We just chatted and glued and chatted and glued. Such an easy and fun project that really makes a statement in my bathroom now.
