Seashell Art Surprise!
Posted by E.G.D. on April 19, 2012
So, I don’t know about you, but the first thing I think of when I hear the word “Mediterranean” is “Sea.” The second, with good reason, is “food.” Every last one of us on the editorial and writing staff of Beach Treasures and Treasure Beaches (and our extended family) loves Mediterranean food. Not unnaturally, my personal favorite buffet restaurant in the universe is Dimassi’s Mediterranean Buffet, and I was there just this past Saturday with my elder sister’s family and in-laws. Now, any trip to Dimassi’s is awesome. There is no exception. However, this particular trip to the Dimassi’s in Sugar Land, Texas was extra awesome due to the fact that their decor included some seriously fun seashell craft pieces. Behold the awesomeness! You can click on any of the images below to scroll through the gallery ^_^:
As you can see, these are more likely to make people think “Mediterranean Sea” than “Mediterranean Food.” The decorative seashell craft shelves with the pots sitting on them were on either side of the front door, and the candle holders were on a shelf across from the checkout desk. Aren’t they neat??
I especially like the use of the purple barnacles on the shelves! I would venture to say that anyone with a shell collection could easily make these simple seashells crafts. All it would take is a wire-mesh form for the candle holders, some simple wall-mount decorative shelves, seashells, and a good craft glue or hot glue gun. If you happen to have a whole bunch of shells and nowhere to display them, this may be just the thing!
You never know where you’re going to spot the next awesome use for seashells and other beach treasures. Three cheers for seashell art surprises!
Happy beach treasure crafting- E.G.D.
