Sea Urchin Jellyfish Ornaments

Created By: Johnny Miller




Dust shells with glitter to create a seashore-inspired tree.

See More Glittered Christmas Ornaments and Handmade Ornaments.



  1. Step 1

    Add stripes or dots to a sea urchin shell: Working in sections, use a glue pen to create stripes or dots, and sprinkle with glitter; gently tap to remove excess, and let dry.

  2. Step 2

    For the jellyfish "tentacles," use tinsel to form a 3- to 4-inch tassel: Cut strands of tinsel to length and tie the ends together with a 12-inch length of metallic cord, creating a hanging loop. 

  3. Step 3

    Insert loop through center hole in shell so tassel hangs beneath the shell. Slip 1 pearl bead over loop, and secure with a dot of glue.

    I am definitely going to do this. My theme this year is Ocean and I have some real shells a friend sent me and are kind of blaw alone. I am doing aqua/turquoise and royal blue as my colors. I have Martha's color glitter in a couple of the colors and the pen. Can't wait to take out my Christmas items after Thanksgiving and fix up those shells to something wonderful.
