    This is the neatest craft I've ever seen! I know I would never have the patience to make it, but it's just great. Looked at the link and her step by step directions are flawless. And I love the fact that she made it into a decoration for her front door. LOVE THIS!

    So cool! I love this idea and I LOVE the colors!
    1) so I've made some wall art with toilet paper cardboard rolls. This is not my own creation, just an idea from pinterest. 2) The one that was mostly my own doing was that my husband and I made our headboard for our bed out of wood door shims. Anyway, I was inspired from an art installation I saw on HGTV year ago, but we put a whole new spin on it. So we wanted to create a woven look so we stacked them 3 high and pin-nailed them to a larger sheet of heavy plywood. Every row switched directions… then we stained it and framed it out with some 2X4s that we painted glossy black.

    I didn't know they came in so many different colors! I've seen Red and natural, but not the other colors. Can you dye the shells? If so, what kind of dye do you think could be used…maybe I'll have to investigate…This picture gave me an idea for a "sailor's valentine" shadow box using natural organic materials besides shells. I'm assuming they were glued with a glue gun?
