    Here's something very similar to what I did:

    I found all of the supplies at Michael's (very inexpensive). I used ribbon to match my wedding colors (teal and white).

          I haven't added the teal ribbon yet, here's how my ring shell looks so far.

              Yep - I found everything at Michael's for less than $10. I dug through the bins of shells in order to find a large one that was in good shape.

              I'm a little concerned about adding sand to the base of the shell - do you think that it will get inbetween the diamonds of my wedding band?

              Another idea that I've been considering (I'm second guessing my shell) is to use a starfish (also sold at Michael's) and tie the ribbon at the centre. I think that I may have issues with customs if my bags get checked...

              I like the pics that you have posted - you can select a shell to go with your wedding colors instead of trying to match ribbon colors.

                  I am using those fake rings you can buy at Michaels and other places for the shell. I don't want to risk them falling off or anything, because my 3 year old nephew is in charge of the shell! The best man will be holding the real rings.
