Living in Seattle I have collected a lot of seashells on family walks. Every time I go back to the water more lovelies are waiting to be taken home. After a while I learned many ways to decorate an apartment with seashells.
A couple of choice scallop shells look great on a bathroom counter or on the window sill of the vanity. You can drill holes through bigger shells and attach to the curtain rings to make a nice shower accessory. Placing a large sand dollar on back of the toilet is a great way to decorate an apartment with seashells. Glue smaller shells around a toothbrush holder and soap dish to give the bathroom a fresh look.
Drill a hole into a variety of different shells and thread twine through each one. Tie the twine pieces onto a metal coat hanger creating divots in the metal to spread out the shells. Attack another piece of twine to a ceiling hook above a crib or bed and hang the lovely mobile. Stringing a net filled with shells in the corner of the room is another way to decorate an apartment with seashells.
Fill a glass jar with multicolored shells and let the sun shine through them in a bright kitchen. Placing several glass jars on top of the cabinets will pull the eye up and make the room seem taller. Displaying woven baskets filled with shells on a dining table is yet another way to decorate an apartment with seashells.
