These unique trinket dishes are made by using discarded scallop shells. They are so easy to do and are truly adorable, they also make a lovely present. To keep with the seaside theme I added a bit of quirkiness to my trinket dishes by attaching a little sea creature. Also I decoupaged the outside of shells to make them even more lovely.

How to make it
Step 1: Spray your sea creature and the inside of your shell the the colour of your choice, metallic colours work best.
Step 2: Decoupage the outside of your shell with paper napkins. Full details of the best way to do this is on my blog.
Step 3: Stick your sea creature into the centre of your shell.
