DIY: Shell Peace Sign

I had fun making this beachy and peaceful decoration – a Shell Peace Sign. My inspiration was a shell peace sign from Pottery Barn Teen. I decided to make one myself. It turned better than I expected. It’s beautiful. The picture below shows the Shell Peace Sign displayed with our Vacation Memory Vase. But the truth is it will eventually be hung in my twins’ bedroom.

I plan to redecorate my twins’ bedroom in the coming weeks. My twins are a boy and girl. This will go on my daughter’s side of the room. I am also redecorating my oldest daughter’s bedroom. I am excited to share all the DIY projects I’ve been making for both bedrooms in future posts.

The materials I used to make this Shell Peace Sign were seashells, a Paper Mache Peace Sign, hot glue gun and sticks, white paint and paint brush.

I found the Paper Mache Peace Sign at Michaels. I first painted the peace sign white.

Next, I laid out shells onto the peace sign. I moved and added shells until I had a layout I liked. I then started gluing each sea shell onto the peace sign.

I will update this post with a link and picture of the Shell Peace Sign when I hang it in my kids’ bedroom.

Have you made any summer, beach-themed or coastal decorations?

Happy Crafting!
