Kirsten and I made these adorable little seashell snails, or as she likes to call them – Mr. Twisters. She calls pipe cleaners twisters, so I guess that’s where the name came from? While we were walking through our dollar store a couple months ago she found bags of various seashells and wanted them really badly. I was pretty sure that I could come up with at least a few crafts to make with them so I happily obliged. Stay tuned for more seashell crafts to come. They’re just too easy and cute. Here’s how we made these adorable little snails:
What you’ll need:
glue – I used our hot glue gun
1. glue the bottom of your seashell to your smooth bottomed stone. This will give it something to stabilize it.
2. glue a small pom pom on the stone coming in close contact with the shell
3. cut a piece of pipe cleaner to the desired length, bend it in a ‘U’ shape, put some glue on it and slip it between the shell and pom pom. Allow to dry.
4. glue some googly eyes to each antennae
