MATERIALS YOU’LL NEED.
- Seashells (two shells make one dish)

TRINKET DISH INSTRUCTIONS.
To start, wash all of your seashells off to get rid of any sand. Let dry. Heat up your hot glue gun and once ready simply place a dime sized dab of hot glue on the top side of one shell in its middle. Next, just place the second shell bottom side up on hot glue and press gently. This second shell will create the dish. Let the glue dry and that’s it! So easy.
BY THE WAY.
You can either leave it natural or from here start decorating your creation. Either way it’ll be cherished and loved because it’ll be handmade by you!
