Shell Fairy Lights

Here's a gorgeous little DIY project from Martha Stewart!

A string of beach treasures casts a dreamy glow on any patio or porch. To get the look, decorate a string of small white fairy lights with clean, dry shells. Tape a 60cm section of lights to your work surface with bulbs lying flat. Apply a thin layer of epoxy (such as Selleys Araldite) along the hinge edge of a shell, and press into place at the base of a light. Repeat for each bulb. Let dry about five minutes before continuing with the next section…then just wait for the sun to go down and switch on these gorgeous lights and admire your handy work – with cocktail in hand of course!
