For our second craft we chose to use
scallop shells again. We prepared them as before (see over the counter
light prep), only this time we decided to make "scallop
angels". Kristina brought in one she had made during the holidays.
Scallop shells (
were courtesy of the West Dennis sea gulls, Ms. Davis walks the
beach every day)
glue gun with glue sticks
or ribbon for hanging
wooden balls with pre-drilled hole
Clean and prepare according to previous
instructions. have an adult pre-drill a hole into the top of
2 and 3)
a length of twine approximately 14", fold in half and loop through
the wooden ball and the top of the angel, pushing it into the scallop
shell. Make a knot in the end that went through the shell and knot the
other end for hanging purposes.
Using the sparkle paint
decorate the shell as you choose. We did stripes, dots some even covered
their entire shell! Let dry thoroughly before the ornament is used.
Hope you enjoyed our
