Part of the fun for me of having a dinner party is setting a few pretty things on the table, and this DIY project from Design*Sponge proves that doesn't need to be an expensive endeavor. Plain ol' oyster shells painted with liquid gold leaf and a food-safe top coat make unique, lovely salt cellars. What a great idea!
This project is as easy as it looks: make sure your oyster shells are free of debris, then paint the inside. That's it! As Amy Azzarito notes, if you wrapped this with a little bottle of fancy salt, it'd also make a great hostess gift.
