My nautilus shell flower girl basket (DIY)

Recommended Posts

That is certainly a perfect basket for decoration and would look even more gorgeous with a bunch of beautiful mix colored flowers in it.

Sorry this one is so small - I'm at work so I can't get a bigger version right now.  But I think it turned out cute!

Very nice pic! The dealer I found the shells from said he would drill small holes for the ribbon. He said the shells are very fragile and would break if dropped. Our flower girls are 5 and 3. Do you think the hot glue was firm enough or should I go ahead and have them drilled since he said he would do it for free. Also, was that a 3-4" shell or the 5-6"?

I think the one I bought said 6-7". It was a perfect size, so I'd definitely recommend the 5-6" if those are your options. I've also heard they are extremely fragile, and was nervous about packing it, but it held up fine. It didn't seem as fragile as expected. The hot glue was no problem at all, but if he's offering to drill a hole I'd probably let him just because it'll be easier to work with and give you some peace of mind! Good ulck. :)

oh how annoying! i totally know what you mean - some days i don't even know my own name.  haha.  mine is between 6 and 7 inches and the opening is 4"x3.75", so plenty big for a little girl to get her hands in to grab some petals.  i can easily get my fingers in there - i was actually pleasantly surprised by the size, i think it's perfect.  if you had a really long aisle it might not hold enough petals but i think it's great!  good luck.  also, i think she sells on etsy with the same seller name. here's the one i bought http://www.ebay.com/itm/WHITE-PEARLIZED-CHAMBERED-NAUTILUS-SEA-SHELL-DECOR-6-7-7087-/160938357291?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2578ac722b#ht_2529wt_932 and she also has a 5-6 in one here http://www.ebay.com/itm/WHITE-PEARLIZED-CHAMBERED-NAUTILUS-SEA-SHELL-DECOR-5-6-7086-/160954762314?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2579a6c44a#ht_2529wt_932 and here on etsy!  http://www.etsy.com/listing/118211828/white-pearl-pearlized-chambered-nautilus?

    • Hey. Well, I would say that for a honeymoon, Florida is not a particularly good option. My preference in such cases is the paradise islands where you can actually to be alone. If I chose where to fly, my recommendations about choice were Seychelles. Just look at the reviews of these islands, and you will immediately fall in love with them. Also, there are only great hotels such as (https://savoy.sc/blog/honeymoon-in-seychelles/) and many others. My wife and I visit this country every year and try to combine different hotels, and this one is very worthy.
    • I purchased a suit from Studio Suits in spring 2019.  I looked around everywhere because I was looking for a specific color which wasn't easy to find, so when I found it on their website I read all the info on their website where they claim to deliver high quality suits, premium material, great tailoring, etc. It couldn't be more false. First of all the company is from INDIA and you won't find out until you receive the package. You order from Stu Suits and receive the package from Harry Suits. I received a suit that was at least two sizes bigger, the shoulders where different one from another, the hamming on the ankles was visible and poorly done.The quality of the fabric was extremely mediocre. The lining looked and felt cheap, no attention to details and no mention anywhere of the kind of material.  When I placed the order I did not receive any welcoming email, but simply one stating my measurements were  not correct and I needed to pay for a trial suit 99$. I re took the measurements and confirmed them. They simply replied saying "all sales are final". When I placed the order they said it would take them 6 weeks to deliver the "custom made suit". I received it within ten days, why? because it wasn't custom at all. I can't stress enough how bad the quality of their product and service is. There are so many other services that can deliver so much better quality for less than what this con company asks for. Hope this can help you folks
