Simple Valentine’s DIY, A Shell Heart!
How To Make An Easy Valentine’s Heart With Shells!
Hi friends! It has been a while. I have so many projects to share with you that are finished and just beginning here around the house. For now, I’ve got this simple Valentine’s Day DIY that involves the sweetest heart made from shells. I am joining my friends Ashley from Modern Glam, Janine from Happy Happy Nester and Leslie from My 100 Year Old Home.
To make this DIY you will need a wood heart shape, smaller shells, craft glue and glue gun/sticks.
To get things started I just laid the shells out how I thought they would fit well. I did this before gluing.
Then I decided I wanted a border on the outside to hold everything in.
I began by carefully gluing the outside border on with hot glue.
Once I had the border set in place how I wanted it I filled the area in with glue and then added all the shells. This reminded me so much of the macaroni crafts I did in Kindergarten, haha.
When it all dried, it was clearer than I was expecting. I may actually do another layer of glue. I also wish it had a little more color, but these were the shells I already had on hand.
I think they shell crafts are super cute and can be used in a variety of ways!
I hope you enjoy and don’t forget to check out all these wonderful Valentine’s DIY’s down below!

So clever! Love it!
This is such a cute idea!
Thanks for this post. I love all of yours. We are going to Florida at the end of February so I will collect shells from the beach and make this for our granddaughter. We live in the Buffalo NY area and it has been a rough year for all of us. The snow storms have been impossible, we had to cancel Christmas for several days because of 7 ft of snow. Thanksgiving was also rough 6 ft then. All the other things that have happened, shootings ar grocery store etc, Taylor wont have it for Valentines day but I will give it to her to hang in her bedroom as soon as it is done. Do you think I can spray paint it pink, (her favorite color), or will lt hurt the shells? Thanks again for all your inspiration.
If you definitely want it whiter around the shells, you could use white glue sticks. They dry white. Pretty like it is though.
