If you have a boring plain white wall and don’t really know what to do with it, here is the solution – create a wall decorated with seashells. What do you need? Transparent or nylon tread, seashells and pieces of polished rocks or corals that you can find during a walk on the beach. Insert each piece by tying small knots, creating the strips you need to cover the wall and then hand them up.
