Crafting on the Coast: 4 Ocean-Inspired Ornaments

December 11, 2015 | By | Comments (7)

If you’re looking for a fresh way to dress up your Christmas tree this season, then look no further. We’ve rounded up four fun ornaments that you can actually make! Courtney Sanchez, crafter, blogger, and lover of coastal decor, provides quick and easy tutorials for each of these festive decorations.

Glitter Nautical Ornaments

Add a colorful hint of sparkle to the tree with these glittery turquoise ornaments. They’re made with simple (and inexpensive!) materials you can find at your local craft store, so it won’t take long to create an entire collection of beachy baubles.

Nautical Mod Podge Ornament

Three simple items are all it takes to design these seafaring ornaments. Grab a package of clear ornaments and your favorite scrapbook paper, and mod podge away! We love this classic nautical style that can easily blend with already existing reds and greens.

Pink Coastal DIY Ornament

Or if you’re aiming for a look that’s more whimsical and chic, cover with a different coastal scrapbook paper. The shell, lobster, and coral-patterned papers used on these ornaments put a pretty-in-pink spin on classic holiday colors.

And last but not least, the starfish. This ornament also requires minimal supplies, and its creamy color makes it truly versatile. We might even be tempted to keep this one up year-round!
