Simple Seashell Heart Ornaments

I've always had a fondness for the gorgeous Sailor's Valentines of yesteryear.
Hundreds of tiny shells, placed ever so carefully in a beautiful pattern...
I can only imagine how long they must have taken to complete.
Just breathtaking!
These heart ornaments are fun, simple, and much less time-consuming!
Cardboard scraps
Assorted small seashells
Clear-drying liquid glue (such as Elmer's or Tacky Glue)
Strong scissors or an exacto knife
Twine or string
First, cut a heart shape from the cardboard.
Then, decide on a pattern and glue the shells in place.
Let dry completely and add a string loop to the back for a hanger.
Make a bunch to decorate a Valentine's Day tree, or to tie onto gifts!
