While we were at the beach this past October, I did a bit of coastal Christmas crafting! I know, I know..it’s the beach, why was I crafting? Well, while the beach is certainly relaxing and stress relieving, crafting to me is just as relaxing! The only thing I brought with me from home was my glue gun and I hit the dollar stores while I was there to pick up some crafting elements. If you live on the coast and need some Christmas decorating ideas, come along with me! 

What Do I Need for this Project?

  • Wooden plaque from Dollar General (DG)
  • Red burlap wired ribbon from DG
  • Wired garland ties from DG or Dollar Tree (DT)
  • 9 ft Novelty Garland from DG
  • Three white starfish (if you do not have access to starfish, they do sell them on Amazon. Find them >>HERE<<.)*
  • Glue gun and hot glue

The first thing we do is hot glue our burlap ribbon to the wooden board. You can use any color that you want. I used the red color.

Next, we added the garland ties to the top and bottom of the wooden board.

Now, we can add our starfish to the plaque! I placed one in the middle first. Then I added the other two on either side. Super cute, right!! You could even leave it like this, but I wanted to add a little extra!

I picked up the novelty garland, not really knowing at first what I was going to do with it. I cut a section that included three of the light ornaments. I draped it over the starfish and glued it in different places to adhere it. And that was it!! Isn’t this darling?! You can either hang this or place it on a table or shelf using a stand. My sister lives in South FL, so I gifted it to her! I’ll update this blog post with a picture when she sends me one!
