DIY: Shell soap dish

By Sugar Lane - Friday, August 20, 2021

Buenos días! Hace mucho que no hacía un DIY por aquí, pero por suerte el verano siempre me inspira. Sabéis que me encanta coger conchas, piedras, cristales o cualquier cosa interesante a la orilla del mar. Más que nada porque no me puedo estar quieta en la toalla! Siempre se me ocurren ideas con mis tesoros marinos y acabo compartiéndolas por aquí.

Good morning! It's been a while since I last shared a DIY, but luckily I get easily inspired in the Summer. You know how much I love picking shells, stones, glasses or any interesting finds by the sea. I basically can not stay still on the towel, I always get new ideas for my marine treasures and love sharing them here. 


En este caso tengo unas conchas que recogí en una playa de Cape Cod hace unas semanas. Y ya sabéis que en América es todo a lo grande, así que no son las típicas conchas de tamaño berberecho... 

This time I have some shells I picked at the beach in Cape Cod a few weeks ago. And you know how everything is big in America, so these are not the average cockle size shell we are used to in Spain...

Necesitas / You need:

  • Conchas grandes / Big shells
  • Esmalte de uñas / Nail polish
  • Monedas / Coins
  • Pistola termoselladora / Glue gun


Según las vi me parecieron perfectas para utilizar de jaboneras, vacia bolsillos o incluso para poner unos caramelos o unos bombones. Como este tipo de concha no tiene apenas brillo, no sé si porque son así o por el desgarte en el mar, he pensado que podrían quedar bien esmaltadas. A ver qué os parecen!

The minute I saw them I thought they could become a soap dish, a trinket tray or even a nice plate for candy or bonbons. This type of shell is not very shinny, not sure if  that is how they are or the shine wore off in the sea, so I thought I would use some nail polish on them. Let me know what do you think!


 


Os dejo el video con el proceso aquí:

Here is the video with the tutorial:



Podéis recordar algunas creaciones anteriores como estos pendientes, un collar, este marco de fotos, una bandejita para las joyas, o incluso una puerta que decoré un verano con mi tía Miriam.

You can check some past creations like these earrings, a necklace, this photo frame, a jewelry tray, or even a door I decorated one Summer with my aunt.
