Beautiful Coastal Starfish Projects

I'm already loving the beach this summer so when
I found this bag of starfish I was all about the coastal decor.

There was a lot of thought given to the fact that these starfish might be real or fake... You can read about the project that made my decision here

I was busy as a bee in my workshop making fun starfish projects for days. 

I'm including my affiliate links in bold blue text so you can find the products I use at no additional cost to you. 

The first one started with a small canvas made of pallet wood. I painted it light blue and gave it a white dry brush technique over the top. 

I attached the starfish with E6000 glue

Another starfish project was similar only I used reclaimed wood from an old wire spool. 

Almost as cool as the starfish is the center of the wire spool... I've just got to find something do with this!

I used hemp oil to condition the already beautiful wood then glued the starfish in place once again with E6000 glue

This project was just as quick and easy, I glued the starfish to a small grapevine wreath then attached the mesh bag the starfish came in as the bow.

Another starfish project began with part of an old piece of furniture. I cut the leg off at an angle then glued on the starfish. 

Using hot glue I added small shells and sea glass then tied on a nautical knot with cotton rope

These were all quick and easy projects that create a whole lot of coastal charm this summer.

  1. I can't decide which one I like the best, it's a tie between the first one and the ones on the round wood slices. All great, though:) Thanks for sharing at Vintage Charm! xo Kathleen|Our Hopeful Home
