Bring the sea life into your home with these fabulous DIY seashell picture frames. Now just close your eyes and imagine the crashing waves at your feet.


  • Picture frames
  • Sandpaper
  • Primer
  • Paint
  • Brush
  • Seashells
  • Hot glue gun
  • Glue sticks


If painting the picture frame, remove the glass from the frame. Lightly sand the frame with sandpaper then wipe with a damp cloth to remove any sawdust. Once dry, apply a coat of primer on the entire surface of the frame and allow it to dry completely. Once the primer has dried, paint the frame, let dry completely, then repeat with additional coats of paint, if necessary.

If desired, arrange seashells on picture frame prior to attaching them. Using a hot glue gun, carefully attach each seashell to the frame.


STAY SAFE: Please ensure this DIY is done in a well-ventilated area.

ORANGE & FIELD TIP: We suggest placing heavier seashells along the bottom of the frame to prevent the top from becoming too heavy.
