Framed Seashell Stencil Art Wall Decor
I know…..lame title. Did it get your attention? The framed seashell stencil art wall decor was a mirror in it’s prior life.
This mirror. I paid less than a dollar for it at the thrift store just up the street from me.
I always spray the backside of frames first. Beautiful paint color from Krylon – Chalky finish in Waterfall.
It was a toss up between the starfish and the seashell.
I cut the stencil apart so I could lay the shell flat in the frame. The colors I chose for the stencil are three whitish shades from FolkArt.
Without seeing the shell in just one white color it’s hard to tell how three different colors add dimension to the stencil…but they do. Stencil one color, let it dry, stencil a dab of the second color here and there….let it dry….stencil your third color in random spots. Now the stencil doesn’t look “flat”.
How easy was that.
The chalky finish paint adheres to glass. That’s what it says on the can. I distressed the frame using 150 grit sandpaper.
That’s it for me. Time to see what my friends have for us. Just click those pink links below.

I love what you did with this thrift store find!!! Thank you for sharing your creativity! #HomeMattersParty
Clever title 🙂 I grew up around the ocean and love projects like this. I have to have some type of sea decor in the home to remind of where I grew up.
Nice projects, like the shell in the glass
This is adorable. What a cute, quick project.
This is so pretty, love the beachy feel!

You know I love this!!! Super cute seashell!
So cute! Thanks for the tip of using 3 different shades of white to create dimension.
That's a great idea! I love when I learn something new! 🙂
I think your title was cute! I love this project. Thank you for sharing!
Oh to be stenciling anything by the seashore. I'm positive I'd work better and faster with an ocean view.
I agree with you Bliss!
Love an Ocean view, the sound of the ocean and the lovely fragrance of saltwater.
