Sea Shell Candle Holders

Hope you had a great weekend! Did you work on any new projects? Or did you take a trip? After hearing about all the great new Mod Podge products at Michaels, our family took a trip to a bigger nearby city to check it out for ourselves. Wow! I found some great things and just couldn’t decide what to get or what I wanted to make. After much debate, I decided on the sample pack of Mod Podge so that I can try it all and I got a package of podgeables.
I am changing things up in the house and have decided to go with a beach theme. So after visiting Michaels, I though it would be the perfect time to get started.
I made two candle holders with twine, shells and Mod Podge.
 

The first candle holder I wrapped with twine, keeping it in place with Mod Podge. I added some sparkle to a plain starfish with the new sparkle Mod Podge. Then, I placed the starfish on the twine.

On the second candle holder, I used Mod Podge, sea shells, and crushed sea shells.
I covered the bottom half of the candle holder with mod podge and crushed shells. I did this twice to get the amount of shells I wanted because with one coat it looked a little bare. Then I added a few shells.
 
I love how they both turned out! What do you think?

    I love modge podge! I had no idea there was sparkle MP!! I gotta go get it! So, on the first one, how did you get the star to stay on…hot glue?
    I love this. Living in FLorida, our family always wants us to send them shells and this would be a great idea! Put some beach sand in the bottom and place the candle on top! Very cool post!
