10 Beautiful Ways to Repurpose Oyster Shells

It's the first time we share with you some ideas of decorations made from upcycled Oyster shells! Oyster shells are relatively easy to find, you can find some of them directly on beaches, but also you can ask for restaurants if they can keep some for you or during your next party with Oysters. Keep the shells to make beautiful decorations such as lamps, mirrors, chandeliers, candle holders, wreaths or Christmas decorations! Here is our selection of 10 great repurposing Oyster Shell ideas! So don't throw away any more Oyster shells, keep them carefully!

I don’t know about where you are, but here it’s against the law to take oyster shell’s off the beach. Without the shell’s the oyster larva have nothing to attach to and so never grow into a adult oyster.

Please check your local laws before taking these shell’s home for crafts.
