DIY Seashell Mirror

2 Hours
As I sat at home on a snow day in PA, I needed a project to work on, but since the snow day was unusual and unplanned for me, I had to work with what I had. I found a yard sale mirror, collected and thrift shop shells and some hot glue and I got to work on my project.

    I have a large 4ft x 6ft mirror in my bathroom and I’d love to try this, but can I glue the shells directly on the mirror. If so, what should I use to glue them on with so they won’t fall off.
