Shell bridal bouquet to make

Living in the South Sound, it is not surprising that many brides and grooms choose a waterfront theme.

Make a shell bouquet for the bride, bridesmaids, and later use them as centerpieces at the reception -- and as keepsakes from your South Sound wedding.

Supplies: Holder, round tulle forms, variety of shells, sea glass (optional) spray glitter (optional) and hot glue gun.

Prepare: Wash and dry the shells and sea glass. Once dry, shells can be lightly sprayed with clear, silver or gold glitter.

Design: Pre-design the bouquet: determine where the shells will be placed, and be sure they fit. Before gluing the shells to the holder, fabric could be glued to the holder to cover the holder.

Making the bouquet: Using a hot glue gun, glue the shells to the form. Make sure all of the plastic form is covered.

Handling and storage notes: A shell bouquet is heavy and can easily scratch hands. Consider wearing gloves if using this for a wedding ceremony. Be careful when setting down the bouquet as shells are fragile. It's best to store it in a large, strong glass jar, such as a peanut butter jar.
