For this craft, use card stock or other thick paper; it's less likely to warp.


  • Seashells and/or pebbles

  • Water

  • Paint

  • Small spray bottle


  1. Cover your work surface.

  2. Add 1 teaspoon acrylic paint to a small spray bottle. Fill halfway with water; shake to mix. (For a more translucent solution, add more water.)

  3. Arrange shells or pebbles on note cards or another paper item.

  4. Spray paint mixture over shells or pebbles. Let dry for about 30 minutes before lifting objects.
