Display your seashell collection with a unique colored sand and shell monogram!  The perfect way to use up seashells!


  • Scenic Sand (1 lb.) in colors of your choice.  We used Orange and Pink.
  • Mod Podge (matte)
  • Foam brush
  • Unfinished wood letter
  • Seashells
  • Hot glue gun and glue
You only need a few simple supplies to make a colored sand and seashell monogram.


First, mix 1/4 cup of Scenic Sand with 1/4 cup of Mod Podge matte sealer to form a colored sand paint.  

Mix Scenic Sand and Mod Podge to form a colored sand paint.

Next, use the foam brush to apply the sand paint to the unfinished wood letter.  (TIP: Protect your work surface so that you do not splatter sand paint onto the surface.)

Apply colored sand paint to the unfinished wood letter to create the base of the colored sand monogram.

Allow the sand paint to dry thoroughly before proceeding to the next step.  Once the sand paint is dry, you may wish to add a second coat of sand paint in any bare spots.

Look at the vibrant color of the Scenic Sand colored sand, and the amazing texture on the letters!

Colored sand paint produces vibrant shades and interesting texture.

Once the sand paint is totally dry, arrange the seashells on the letter in any way you wish.  Then glue the seashells to the letter with hot glue.

Secondly, I LOVE these sand monograms! I truly mean love everything about them! I absolutely am at peace when I’m at the beach with the sand squishing in between my toes, looking for shells and sharks teeth and listening to the waves crashing into the ocean. Awe, just so peaceful! (wish I was there right now!) And I love using wood letters to craft with, so this project is just perfect! Thank you for sharing this, going to pin it so I definitely can find it again! Looking forward to checking out the rest of your website!
