A friend of mine brought a small oyster shell when she had been to the beach some time back. Here is the oyster shell transformed into something else which is suitable for a DIY wedding… ‘Beach theme’ maybe?!
Steps to make the Wedding ring Holder:
We will start with a small oyster shell.
I was initially toying with the idea of lining a layer of felt inside the shell. But then, a coat of pearl color seemed to have a better look and so here is the second step – a coat of pearl acrylic color painted inside the shell.
For the outside of the oyster shell, gold acrylic color is painted.
A coat of clear sealant is brushed on both the inside and the outside of the shell. This is left to dry for a couple of hours.
I just placed a ring to see how it looks 🙂
On the bottom shell, apply some glue (which becomes transparent when dry) and place a thread.
The ring is placed inside the shell, the shell is closed, the thread is brought up to the top shell and tied in a knot.
You can untie and open up the shell to take out the ring…
