DIY: A heart of shells

I’ve been working on this DIY for a loooong time! I came up with this idea when I was walking on the beach and saw all the beautiful shells that came out of the sea. I started collecting some shells and soon enough this Do It Yourself project came to my mind. I hope you like it!

What you need:
A bunch of shells
Gluegun and gluesticks
Canvas board
Tape
Newspaper (or something else big you can cut a heart out of)

Wash off the sand from your shells and lay them down like this to let them dry

Place shells on the line you made. I put small ones on the bottom and the top curves, filled it in with bigger ones.
