My craft table is getting a good workout lately. It's a mess with pine needles, shells, glitter and glue, among other things. I'm glad to have this space to spread out and use things I already have on hand. Tonight I found a cone shaped form to use to make a topiary. The periwinkles are the tiny snail like shells that are plentiful all along the coast.
I started at the base of the form with the larger periwinkles, attaching them with my hot glue gun.
Continuing in upward circles, I saved the smaller ones for the top.
To complete, I added a shell topper and assembled the shell covered form into a small urn shaped vase with a piece of driftwood and some moss.
