It doesn’t get much easier. Paint your seashells, choosing smaller shells for tails and fins. Once you have chosen which shells go with which, go ahead and glue them together. Glue googly eyes onto your fish.

I used googly eyes with eyelashes. You can use regular ones. The link above in the supplies goes to some with eyelashes if you’re interested. Have fun with it!
