Picture of Seashell Christmas Tree
I got this idea when I browsing around Hobby Lobby for some materials, I saw an adorable picture of a seashell christmas tree but it had no instructions on how to make it so i winged it and this is what I came up. This is a cute and adorable little tree that is easy to make and looks great, you can use it for a center peice, decoration, or even as a gift! Enjoy :)

Step 1: Supplies

Alright so the first step (as always) is to gather your goodies. What you will nedd for this adorable little tree is:
-A styrofoam trianlgle (I used the medium size but you can do what ever size you want just know that the amount of shells you will need might double) 
-3 bags of white seashells (you will have some left over but it's better to be safe then sorry I ran out when I only needed six more shells :p)
-a bag or two of small colored seashells (I used two bags because I only used the small swirly shells but you can do waht ever you want)
-a hot glue gun (you can use shell glue from hobby lobby for $4.97 but I didnt feel like spending the money on it when I can use a hot glue gun)
 

Step 2: Getting organized

Divide the shells into three piles for the different size, this step is optional but I did it anyways because it makes it so much easier to keep track.

Step 3: Let's Get Started!

Alright now that your organized let's get started! This is fairly easy just start gluing the shells upside down onto the tree and just glue them all around the tree then sontinue this step till you've the reached the top and covered the whole tree (the next step will show how to top off the tree)
