What You’ll Need

How to Make Charming Seashell Trinket Dishes

  1. Prepare Your Napkins
    • Separate the layers of the paper napkins, keeping only the printed layer for the craft. Discard the other layers.
  2. Apply Mod Podge
    • Brush a layer of Mod Podge onto the inside of the seashell. Press the paper napkin into the shell, smoothing it out with your fingers.
  3. Trim the Excess Paper
    • Allow the Mod Podge to dry, then trim the excess napkin around the edges. You can use scissors or carefully tear the excess off with your fingers.
  4. Add a Touch of Gold
    • Once the shell is dry, use a fine-tip brush to paint a thin gold line around the edges of the seashell.
    • If you’re feeling fancy, apply a small amount of glue to the corner of your dish and arrange a micro-shell to provide a “handle” type accent to your dish.
  5. Admire Your Work
    • And just like that, your trinket dishes are ready to add a seaside touch to your home!
