DIY DECOR: Shell frames

By Sugar Lane - Monday, August 14, 2017

Buenos días! Sigo redecorando nuestro hogar en la costa, y esta vez utilizo conchas de la playa. Me encanta buscar conchas bonitas cuando estoy en la orilla; lapas, caracolas, berberechos, mejillones, trocitos de nácar... en cada playa se encuentran cosas diferentes. Hoy os enseño cómo he decorado unos marcos de fotos con conchas de la playa de Casares, Sabinillas y la Chullera.

Good morning! I'm still decorating our home by the coast, and this time I'm using shells from the beach. I love finding pretty shells by the sea; limpets, cockles, mussels, mother of pearl pieces... you get different ones on each beach. Today I'm showing you how to decorate photo frames with shells I picked from Casares, Sabinillas and Chullera beaches.

Necesitas / You need:
  • Conchas de la playa / Shells from the beach
  • Un marco de fotos / A photo frame
  • Pistola termoselladora / Glue gun

1. Quita la trasera y el cristal del marco / Remove the back and the glass from the frame

2. Prueba diferentes composiciones con las conchas / Try different shells arrangements

3. Decide cómo ls pegarás / Decide the final design

4. Empieza pegando por la esquina y continúa por los laterales / Start glueing on the corner and go on on the sides

5. Rellena los huecos con las conchas pequeñas / Fill in the gaps with smaller shells

Puedes hacer tantos cómo quieras / You can make as many as you want to

6. Coloca el cristal, una foto y la trasera / Put back the glass with a photo and the back

A disfrutar de marcos nuevos ! ! !  /  Enjoy your new frames ! ! !
