DIY or BUY. Six simple sea shell projects for your wedding day.

There are many sea shell projects out there that require insane amounts of fancy pants shells (and talent). Not today – but of course we’ve also included links to buy.

If you can get your hands on some oyster shells they do look fab (especially for project 1.) but all of todays DIYs can be made with nothing more than your good ole local beach shells, and will look amazing for your beach wedding. Hunting for beach shells is good for the soul, and all of these ideas can be whipped up in less than a day (depending on your patience!) If you like this, you’ll LOVE our DIY or BUY series! Enjoy.
