A few weeks ago I shared an adorable tutorial for DIY magnetic beach-themed napkin holders. I have been inspired by our recent trip through Florida to create more DIY holiday decor that has a beach theme. This holiday seashell Christmas tree is easy to make, and looks great either on a shelf or hanging up. Check out the tutorial below to see how to make one of your own.
Burlap covered canvas board
White seashells of various sizes
2 medium sized starfish
Thin colored ribbon
Hot glue gun
1. Lay out your shells on the board in the placement that you like. Try to use larger shells on the bottom and move to smaller shells at the top to form a Christmas tree shape. Be sure to leave a larger space for the starfish tree toppers at the top of the canvas board and room for a burlap ribbon tree trunk at the bottom.
2. Begin hot gluing the shells to the canvas board. Lift and glue one shell at a time to keep the shape in place.
3. Tie two starfish together with ribbon to form a tree topper, and hot glue it to the top of your shell tree on the canvas board.
4. Cut a piece of burlap ribbon and hot glue it to the canvas board so that it acts as a trunk.
Stay tuned as I bring you another DIY beach-themed holiday tutorial next week!
