I've been collecting mussel shells on a few family vacations that we've been on and didn't really know what I was going to do with them. We went to a craft fair in Hilton Head, Mother's Day weekend, and I saw all kinds of shell sculptures and art. My step father's birthday was the perfect opportunity to use all of these shells! I bought a little craft mirror and glued it to a round piece of scrap plywood. I used way more hot glue than necessary to glue all the shells around the mirror... but at least it's built to last.
