What To Do With All Those Saved Seashells!

1 Hour
I have a ton of seashells saved from our many trips to the beach and am always looking for creative ways to use them. A friend and I came across a ton of beautiful oyster shells and made these simple candleholders out of them using just hotglue and styrofoam balls.
There are only a few supplies needed

Using slightly larger shells at the bottom and gradually getting smaller towards the top, each layer of shells gets overlapped so the styrofoam will be covered up.
This can be done with all kinds of shells, even barnacles (sans styrofoam), and in all sizes.
