DIY: Shell Jar

This one is easily my favorite of my recent DIY tutorials! :D I currently have it in the bathroom to hold cotton balls and I love it! Of course you don’t have to use shells. If you have any beads from broken jewellery or some pretty stones you could use those instead.

What I used:

  • Candle Jar
  • Filler 
  • Sea Shells (you can get these from places like e-bay)
  • Gems
  • Clear Nail Varnish (any will do)

Hope you like the video :D

    Great tutorial Klaire! :) I’m so inspired to create my own brush holders now, only I would probably use punky spikes and stuff like that instead of sea shells. Thanks for inspiring me!

    Love this! Finally I can put the gigantic box of seashells I’ve collected over the years to use (: Where can you purchase wall filler? (I’m in Singapore)

    Hey Klaire!

    Tomorrow is my 16th birthday. And y’know what would make my day? Is if you did a HUMONGOUS favor for me. Don’t worry, it’ll be fun for both of us :)

    Basically, I’m writing a book for my Creative Writing class. I’m through chapter 8 and I thought…y’know what would be fun? If Klaire read it! You’ve said multiple times that you love to read, so I thought I’d give it a shot and ask :) It’s a fantasy with a lot of action, suspense, dark magic, and a little romance here and there ;)

    Email me if you’re interested!(please please please?)

    Also, sorry for the completely unrelated comment… I would have commented on your New Years resolutions blog post, but I figured the odds of you seeing this might be better if I commented on a more recent post :)

    Thanks so much!


    PS. If anyone else wants to read my original, give me an email! :)
