Summer is officially here, providing the opportunity for arts and crafts DIYers to create some seasonally-inspired pieces. One of the best materials to use this time of year is seashells. Using rare shells or a variety of shells, you can create virtually any decoration you can imagine. Although some seashell art may be a little challenging to pull off with your kids, you can create a fun crafts project using anything you have handy. For instance, create a unique seashell candle (like the one pictured above) to serve as a centerpiece on your outdoor table during summer picnics.

Using Super Glue Glass Adhesive, you can easily bond a variety of shells to the outside of a glass candle holder and its base. Make sure your shells are clean and free of sand before gluing. If you are working with your kids, make sure to supervise them as they glue the shells to the glass. The Super Glue Glass Adhesive cures after about 10 minutes; just make sure to work outside, as the glue needs UV exposure to cure. Once your candle holder is decorated in summer style, enjoy a nice outdoor dinner by candlelight. Arts and crafts followed by dinner under the stars sounds like the perfect summer day to us.
