How to make a Santa Oyster Shell


1. Get a clean oyster shell.
2. Paint the pointed quarter bright red for the hat.
3. Paint the bottom three quarters white and allow to dry.
4. Paint a peach or flesh colored oval for the face.
5. Using a toothpick or small paint brush, paint facial features on
    your santa shell.
6. Finish by painting a white moustache and 2nd coat of white
    beard on your shell. Place a white rim with black borders on     
    your "hat". Hot glue a cotton ball and ribbon for hanging on top


Oysters are a part of the marsh ecosystem and an
 important part of our economy
