  1. Paint canvas to create an ombre sunset look, going from light colors on the bottom to dark colors on the top. Let dry.
  2. Decide on shell pattern and initial/wording. (This light strand had 18 lights so we used 18 shells) Using hot glue, quickly draw out design and cover in sand. Brush away any excess sand once cooled/dry.
  3. Lay out shells and glue them into place.
