Sea Urchin Sculptures for a Coastal Christmas and beyond

Sea urchins can have spines up to 12 inches long! They protect the urchins from predators. Understandably as home accents they're usually depicted with either tiny spines or non. After all, a Ceramic Sea Urchin Bowl (for example) surrounded with long pointy spines would be rather impractical. But sea urchin sculptures with long spines make unique and elegant decorations for Christmas and beyond!

And how cute is this DIY Christmas Sea Urchin. All you need for this project is a foam ball, toothpicks and paint. You have seen a sparkly silver glitter version on 12 Homemade Xmas Ornaments!

Here you see a bunch of them tucked into the Christmas Tree.

Kissa Design's sea urchin sculptures look stunning as Christmas Tree Toppers too!

They're so fun and playful! There are approximately 700 different species of them, and the largest can reach up to 14 in. I think I'm falling for sea urchin sculptures! This home is feature on Our Boathouse, but I couldn't find the original source.
