Scallop Shell Candles

Materials Required:

  • Candle wax
  • Hot glue gun
  • Candlewick


The first thing you need to do is cut the candle wick to your desired height. With the use of your hot glue gun, get a small amount of glue on it. Position the wick in the shell and leave it to cool. Heat the candle wax for a few minutes, put the liquid into the shell and let it cool down. Make sure that you do not completely fill it. If you want, you can also color the shells or add sand dollars.

You can create a centerpiece with a grouping of beautiful scallop seashells placed in a glass bowl filled with sand! 

Scallop Shell Fairy Lights

Materials Required:

  • Hot glue gun
  • A string of white lights


Start with taping a two-foot section of fairy lights to the work surface with the bulbs lying flat on it. With the help of the hot glue gun, apply a small amount of the glue for hinging the shells. After that, press the hinge of the shells to the base of the bulb. Repeat this process for each bulb till you are satisfied with the length. 

Keep in mind that you need to let each two-foot section dry for about five minutes so that everything sticks together. Only then can you move to the next section!

Scallop Shell Wind Chimes

Materials Required:

  • Driftwood
  • Twine or fishing line
  • Scissors
  • Hand drill


The first step is to lay out around six driftwood pieces on your table in length to hang vertically as well as horizontally at the top. Take the drill machine and make a hole into the top of each piece and thread it with the twine, attaching it to the top. Again, make a hole on the top of each scallop shell. Tie a simple knot with the help of the fishing line with five or six shells per strand. Now tie these strands to the top piece of the driftwood. Hang a piece of twine from the top once all the pieces are attached.
