Picture of Seashell wall art!

I decided to redecorate my bathroom in the ubiquitous beach / seashell theme, but decided that the walls were too naked for my liking.  With a less than $20 worth of parts I was able to add some real flair to the "throne room!" 

This is my first instructable, so I would love some constructive criticism :)

Step 1: Materials ...

Picture of Materials ...
1. Set of three "wall cube" shelves from Target ... about $15.
2. Seashells.  I was lucky to find these for $1 a basket at Dollar Tree.  I only opened two baskets & didn't even use all of them, so I had plenty.
3. Craft foam, also $1 a pack at the Dollar Tree.  I only ended up using most of a single cube, so I had plenty left over.
4. Hot glue gun & glue sticks.
5. Cutting board.
6. Sharp knife.

Since I already had the knife / cutting board but bought everything else, I think the whole thing cost me under $20 for the parts I actually used (I bought more than I needed).

Step 2: Cut the foam

You don't want the foam to take up the entire cube, and it only needs to be flush against the front of the cube (you don't want it sticking out).  I cut one cube in half, then cut each "skinny" square into pieces.

Cute idea for dressing up the walls.
