Starfish Decor -Hang them with Twine!

An easy breezy starfish decor idea! You might be surprised how creatively you can hang starfish with twine!

I get the feeling that Layla of The Letter Cottage invented this particular starfish hanging method! She tied a piece of jute twine from one side of a picture frame to another with the help of clips.

The little clips are from Ikea.

Sasha of Lemonade Makin' Mama drew her inspiration from Layla and created this string of starfish with a series of knots tied into it, using the same clips.

And she decorated her bedroom mirror.

This will be my next project! I've got sheer white curtains that need a little splash by the sea with starfish. I'll get out the dremmel (sp) to add some of my many shells I've been holding on to.

I'm stealing the clip idea! I have a bunch of white starfish left over from our wedding and was thinking of making christmas tree ornaments for the beach house.
