Sea Shell Ghost Halloween Ornament or Decoration

This Sea Shell Ghost Halloween Ornament or Decoration is a great use for some of the shells your family collected at the beach! It would be a fun kids activity for a Halloween party too. If the kids make them you might want to write the year on the back of the shell... As much as we think we'll remember, well, you know:@)
Pin It
This little guy was trimmed in iridescent paint glitter all around the edges, if your shell isn't naturally white you can paint it. The eyes and mouth were simply added with a Sharpie, googly eyes would be fun too. Glue ribbon on top for hanging and maybe some ribbon, streamers or cheesecloth to the bottom to add some movement.
There you have it folks, not only a memory from vacation but a fun ornament for the tree! I saw bigger clam shells and crab shells painted orange and turned into jack-o-lanterns on Pinterest, another great idea:@)
Have a happy day!

  8. Hi Lynn, This is just my kind of Halloween decor ~ cute and just a teeny bit scary! You are so right about remembering those dates! I wish I had dated everything my kids brought home or gave me. Have a great day. It is a glorious fall day here and hope you are having the same! Linda
