Festive Seashell Caroler and Angel Ornaments

Easy Christmas Ornaments: Seashell Angels and Carolers

Easy Christmas Ornaments: Seashell Carolers and Angels

Here’s a quick and easy idea for family-time creativity and crafting! Seashell Christmas angels and carolers are just perfect for the Fraser Fir, and they’ll add seaside style when hung on drawer pulls and cabinet knobs for the rest of the year!

Elisa and I had a blast last week putting these little seashell Christmas angel and caroler ornaments together.

List of doodads and tools we used for our evening of holiday fun:
□ seashells: scallops, oysters, cockles, etc.
□ wooden beads
□ 1/8 inch ribbon on spools
□ pipe cleaners
□ pre-made ribbon flowers
□ rickrack
□ glitter and glitter glue
□ buttons of all sizes
□ permanent markers (or craft paints)
□ hot glue gun and glue sticks
□ scissors

Hairdos and faces were drawn on some of the wooden beads with permanent markers. A few of the angels have glitter glue painted on their seashell skirts. Buttons were used as hats. Halos and arms were made from pipe cleaners. We made our angels’ wings by simply looping the ribbon around a hand a few times and tying the center with a knot.
Just to be sure, a few the of the seashell ornaments were stabilized by hot gluing buttons to the backs of the figures (where the seashells met).

There we have it: festive, fun seashell Christmas ornaments and year-round seashore keepsakes!

Here are a few more ideas for using your beach treasures as Christmas tree ornaments:
