I have decorated picture frames with shells that I collected. I used GE Silicone to adhere them to the frames. It has worked very well. Some of them I sprayed lightly after with gold spray paint and they look fabulous! I have given many away as gifts.

Have any of you seen color tinted shells? How is that done?BTW,thanks for the glue tip.I guess the easy way out would be styro cones,but I have visions of beginning the process with a wrap of xmas lights,and I don't want to have the tree burn,so I was thinking about a teepee of driftwood with the lights wired to the inside,and fishnet over the top with shells glued on outside.Any thoughts?
