To make a Seashell accessory, you need to get some seashells, some paint - you can use nail polish if you like, some hairpins and a driller or a big needle to drill holes. 

1. Make sure your seashell is hard and does not have any holes. You can wash your shell or sanitise it to remove any germs. 

2. Drill a hole at the tip of the shell. Do this carefully to prevent the shell from breaking. 

3. Next, paint your shell using whatever pain is available. If you are using nail polish, ensure you make at least three coats. You can also use some transparent nail polish as a final coat. 

4. Once your seashell is completely dry, pass your hairpin through the hole. An optional step is to use some glue to make sure it sticks firmly. 

Voila! Your new hair accessory is ready to be used.
