Seashell Windchime Craft

We went for a holiday to the beautiful Koh Samui beach in Thailand quite some time ago, and collected many pretty seashells there as souvenirs.
The seashells had been sitting in our house for quite a while now, and I've finally decided to take them out for a craft activity with my kids.

In case you'd like to find out more about Koh Samui, I've included a link for you.

Before we begin, here are some pictures of Gwen and Oliver enjoying themselves at the private beach. :)

Materials Needed:

- Twine string
- Super glue or glue gun
- Scissors
- A twig
- Seashells

1. Pick out the pretty seashells you would like to use.

2. I tried to select those seashells with holes so that I can easily slip the twine in, then tie a knot to secure the seashell.

3. For those seashells with no holes, I simply used super glue or hot glue gun to secure them on the twine.

Leave them to dry for a while.

4. Once they are all dried, assemble the pieces on the twig.

Then tie them on the twig and secure them.

5. Lastly, tie another piece of twine on the twig to hold up the seashell windchime.

Tadaaaa.... Here's our masterpiece and souvenir to remember our little trip to Koh Samui beach!

Hope you enjoyed our little seashell craft, and thanks for stopping by!
