I get down on the beach here in Seaside, Oregon to gather razor clam shells to make various crafts to sell at the local shops. It is so fun to have FREE craft supplies!!! YAY!
This ornament goes together very quickly and looks darling on the tree. The vintage sailor boy and the label are available for you to click and print below.
Supplies: razor clam shell (use white glue to make the edge glittered) 2 pipe cleaners, the pdf. images printed and cut out. Don’t cut the shoes completely out, leave a paper tab and fold it back. SEE BELOW>
Using hot glue, attach one pipe cleaner down the middle and clip the end to 1″.
Fold the other pipe cleaner in half.
Curl the ends of the pipe cleaner.
Wrap the extra 1″ pipe cleaner around the folded pipe cleaner so it is attached.
Use hot glue to attach the bottom tab and use a dab of hot glue to secure the sailor boy’s shoulders to the pipe cleaner. You can attach a silver cord for the hanger or use a metal ornament hanger.
Glitter the label/banner and secure on both sides of the pipe cleaner and the sailor boys knees.
Isn’t it cute? Have fun making one you can keep it for yourself or put it in a pretty gift box to give away.
