    Loved the size and the outer look if the shell, I just wish the inside looked like the outside. The outside has a very defined shell look, but the inside is very rough and harder to see the shell outline. I used two to make a top and bottom to a shell!

    nice decoration

    Smaller than expected - cute shell but was hoping for something a little more dramatic. We spray painted a bunch of metallic colors and that improved it quite a bit.

          This giant shell was used to hold forks, spoons and knives for a beach themed party. I placed it on top of light blue shimmera sprinkled with sand and loose sea shells. It was the perfect touch!

            This is a great deal. I orderd for an Under the Sea/Nemo 2nd birthday party for my great niece. Was delighted that it was unpainted so that I could add my own colors. Took very little spray paint to add my Nemo colors! The end result was two "Thanks for swimming by" treat holders!

              This sea shell wasn't as deep as I thought. I was going to use this to hold party favors. However I'm not wanting/going to paint it. I'm propping it up 3ins and placing mini croissants in it instead which will work perfect. It gives the table a nice touch for an ocean theme party.

                        These shells were great quality. They are durable paper mache but are off white in color. They can be easily painted in a quick iridescent spray paint to make them shiny or accent colors can be added for more of a real likeness. It is a great product and very versatile.

                                      The shell was great looking, the inside needs to smoother but will recommed to others great for hanging on wall

                                                This item is made of natural paper mache and if you put fruit on it, it will soak into it. It is made more for a decoration but not for food.
