We stopped at Michaels today and I picked up some thin decorative ribbon for the smaller shells and a thicker ribbon for the larger ones. (I choose red and gold as our tree colors this year.) I also picked up some antique gold spray paint for some of the shells. While I was spraying them I remembered some old decorative vases I had from my old apartment that don't match anything in the new place (they are pink and turquoise). Spray paint is an easy way to spruce up old decorations. They are perfect for the bedroom now!

|Be-careful not to breath in the paint. Also it's not necessary to spray directly over the shells, just mist them for a second or two.|
