Flamingo Seashell Mosaic How To ~ Craft Klatch Beach Crafting

11 Materials
Time for a seashell beach craft! It's made with those little shells you find on the beach that burrow into the sand, right at the water's edge. I don't take any live ones. There are tons that are already open and dried out waiting for you to make a beautiful project!
Watch the video above to see how I did it.

Here are some highlights:
Take a wood plaque.
Paint it.
Take small shells you found at the beach.
Arrange them into a flamingo.
Glue them on.
Grout it.
It was a little darker than I wanted - so I lightened it and sealed it.
To find specific details, go to the original blogpost, on my website.

    Hi Mona, just came across your video on the mosaic Flamingo and it's beautiful. I've done a few pojects with seashells and i love working with that medium. I think the only thing i would have done different then you is, i would have left the dark grout in and around the beak and maybe a little outline on the eye, though at the moment i have no idea if that would be anatomically correct, lol, but love, love, love the idea of using fingernail polish to "pinken-up" the shells. Beautiful and so smart. Thanks for the tips !
