Want to put your beach finds to practical use? Turn a pair of pretty shells into a soap dish.
Martha Stewart Living, August 2004
Wash one big shell and one small shell. Make a ring of crumpled newspaper to cushion them as you work.
Attach the big shell to the small shell, back to back, with a dab of two-part epoxy.
Place the shells in the ring of newspaper, small shell down, so the paper supports the top shell and keeps it from slipping out of place. (Be sure the epoxy doesn't touch the paper.) Let dry thoroughly.
