Bring the idea of a sunny beach inside during December with this Crushed Shell Tabletop Tree. Unlike some other shell crafts, this mini Christmas tree uses pre-crushed shells that you can buy from a craft store so it's really easy to create. The mother of pearl shimmer of the paint underneath on the tree base paired with the varied colors and shimmer from the shells make this one of the most beautiful tabletop trees possible. It will add an exciting "Christmas in July" element to your Christmas decorations this year.

Who knew crushed shells could make something so gorgeous? Now I know what to do with all the broken shells I have in the bottom of my shell box. I was trying to decide whether to toss them or not when I was going through my craft stuff. I am glad I waited. Now I can use them too.

Now this is truly unique. I have so many shells that I have gathered over the years. Living in Florida it's relatively easy to gather them. And we always wonder what to do with the broken ones. You have just solved that problem. I think instead of one big tree, I will make a set of smaller ones. I also want to add some red beads. Thank you for sharing.
