Eco-friendly Summer DIY
It’s midsummer here in the Northern Hemisphere. The days are slightly warm, slightly cold with occasional rain, and today I’m sharing a lovely way to keep you or your little ones occupied indoor. Blessed with gorgeous weather? Gather your supplies, spread a blanket and try this fun 15 minutes project.
Use your time, mind and imagination to DIY this piece of shell art to hang inside or outside of your home.
I’m sure no matter which wild treasure you’ve got on your hand, these organic shapes strung up with wire will make a beautiful statement that brings melody and movement to your home.
So let’s do this!
Shells, beach finds, beads
Side cutter jewellery plier
If you haven’t got a Dremel or similar tool, just secure each piece by wrapping wire around each shell.
Decide for a design. Thread each shell with wire and tie a not where you want a bead to sit
Attach the wire to each of the brass pipes, the shell and beads and that’s it, time to hang you shell art
Can’t remember when I didn’t have visions of making a mobile, as I’m a BIG fan of everything floating.
I figured I’d make some sort of simple mobile structure and you can use nearly anything for this project. No brass pipes? Use bamboo sticks or buy pre-made mobile base at your local craft store.
Of course, you don’t have to limit yourself to the usual materials, think outside the box and I know you’ll end up with something beautiful. So let me know, done any fun summer crafts?
