    Isn't there a way for you to make fabric out of these? They are so pretty--I can see why you like them :)

    Edited: By the printable fabric, run it through a color printer and fussy cut so you can sew it into quilts/pillows, etc. and enjoy in your home.
    I think you will be amazed at what it will turn out like :) :)

    I had a bunch of shells that I put in a shallow round clear bowl, filled with water and put floating candles in .

    I have filled large jars with shells and made them into lamps.

    That's what my grandma has. She bought lamps that were just clear glass. She unscrewed the top and put the shells in.
    My husbands grandma has them in a glass bowl on her kitchen table.

    I had gotten some on a trip to Texas and when I returned home I glued them on to a picture frame and put it on my mantel. Also a friend of mine has a mirror with shells glue all around it and it fits in her by the sea motif in her florida room.

    You could glue them around picture frames to dress them up. Or glue them around a mirror to frame it for a decorative frame. Put them in a bowl around a large candle for a decorative candle holder. They are beautiful shells and you can use them to decorate a lot of things. Please show us pictures of what you do with them. Would love to see. :D :D :D

    Very pretty shells. They would make great fabric.

    You can get the large glass candy jars at wall-mart, and they have lids, so no dust collects. they look great with shells in them.
