HOW TO DECORATE POTS WITH SEASHELLS
HOW TO DECORATE POTS WITH SEASHELLS, A DO IT YOURSELF CRAFT PROJECT IDEA FOR PERSONALIZING A GARDEN PLANTER POT .
Remove any dirt or debris from the terra cotta pot(s). If you are planning to use the pot in a warm location or outdoors, you may want to seal them first.Rinse the shells to remove any debris as well. Allow the pot(s) and shells to fully dry. Line up your seashells by size. You will need the smaller shells for the bottom and the larger ones on top.If you are using a glue gun make sure that it is plugged in and warm.However, if you are using a stronger glue take the needed precautions as indicated on the packaging. Start by adding a line of glue on the inside bottom section of the first shell and then press the shell firmly on the top part (rim) of the terra cotta pot. The shell should extend over the top of the rim. Repeat this process all the way around the top part of the pot to complete the row.
For the second layer, add the glue to both the bottom and the top part of the shells. The shells will need to adhere to both the pot and the shell that it will overlap on top of.
Repeat this until the entire pot is covered with shells. Allow the glue to fully dry before moving the pot.
