What a great way to celebrate the 4th…searching the seashore for the perfect shells for your patriotic display.

Search the beaches for shells of all shapes and sizes. Clean well to get all the sand and grit off and let dry completely. Brush on red white and blue colors of your own creation or use these as a model. Let dry and spray with clear spray to preserve.
