- Spread a layer of wall tile adhesive, about 0.5cm thick, on the back of the old picture frame.
- Place the shells on the adhesive and sprinkle sand and pebbles on to create your pattern. Add googly eyes if required.
- Leave to harden for a day or two. Once the adhesive has hardened, paint with a thin layer of liquid latex or vanish (younger kids might need a little help with this part).
- Leave to dry and add another layer of vanish or liquid latex if required.
