Sea Shell Plaster Mold

Hey everyone! I am back from Spring Break in South Carolina. The weather was great and we were even able to fit in a fun craft thanks to my Aunt's brilliant idea. This would be a great craft to do with the kids on the beach. It's easy and fast and so much fun!

Start with a shell of your choice and push it into the sand face down.


Use an old frame to also push into the sand.

Carefully remove both pieces.

Fill the hole with Plaster of Paris.

Continue to fill it all in.

This is what it will look like.

Let it dry in the sun while you go swimming.

An hour or so later, gently pull it out of the sand and rinse it in the water. And now you have a mold of your favorite shell to remember your favorite vacation.

I will be linking to these parties!

  29. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but
    I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for
    me. I'm looking forward for your next post, I'll try to get the hang of it!

  31. I comment each time I appreciate a article on a site or I have something to add to the conversation.
    Usually it's triggered by the passion communicated in the article I browsed. And on this post "Sea Shell Plaster Mold". I was actually moved enough to drop a comment :) I actually do have 2 questions for you if you usually do not mind. Could it be only me or do some of these comments look as if they are coming from brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting at other sites, I would like to keep up with everything fresh you have to post. Could you make a list all of all your community sites like your linkedin profile, Facebook page or twitter feed?
