My Crafty Homemade Christmas -Decorations from the Beach & Inspired by the Sea

Shop Coastal Decor

Welcome to my crafty homemade Christmas! I'm going to show you all my Christmas decorations. Most of them I found on the beach, and the ones I didn't are, of course, inspired by the sea. Ready for the tour? Let's jump right!

homemade shell tree topper
A few weeks ago I didn't know what razor shells were (see: Free Beach Christmas Gifts & Decor), now they're my Christmas tree topper. I tied the first shell to the tree with wire, then hot glued the other shells on top, plus added a piece of seaglass for a touch of green.


homemade Christmas ornaments
We have a ton of drop cloth leftover -and I've been using it! First example, a drop cloth Christmas tree garland. Husb made the wave stencil for it. I used spray paint, and fringed the edges. Crafty Christmas decorations as promised! The gold painted Shell Ornaments are the same as last year, only facing the other way. The gold just didn't work. The white does!

homemade christmas stockings

This year, husb and I decided to surprise each other with stockings. When I saw what he made, I had a fit of "oh, wow, can't believe you made this" A stocking hanging from an awesome wooden lighthouse! After Christmas, he'll attach a bottom under the open space, so that I can use it as a tray for beach rocks and shells! Oh, and the stocking, he bought it in a store, toned down the bright red of the Santa with mesh fabric and edged the whole thing with rope.

homemade Christmas stocking
My stocking for him -much more modest and smaller in size! Made of? Yep. Drop cloth. I hot glued on a shell and rope. Then, I remembered that I had a piece of fish netting in my beachcomber's stash, so I draped it over a parcel that we received from family.

I stole a branch from the Christmas tree in the living room to create a sparkly display with Christmas lights, a few scallop shells (found a bunch on the beach, see This Coastal Mix) and a Fishing Glass Float.

christmas balls decorations
I placed a few white Christmas Balls into my beachcomber bowl that sits on the dining room table (on drop cloth).

Also in the dining room, a small green wreath hangs over a window and in the distance you see my Mini Driftwood Tree. On the left, My Shell Garland.

A close up shows how I attached chunky pieces of seaglass with wire.

And more crafty homemade Christmas decorations from the beach on the kitchen counter. A jar full of seaglass with Christmas lights! This jar will stick around.

shell lantern
A lantern with scallop shells glued on sits on the kitchen island. And a large green wreath with Christmas lights is hanging in between windows over the sink.

starfish wreath
The wreath is adorned with gold painted DIY Wire Starfish.

Christmas buoy with bow
Lastly, a buoy with a bow! You might recall the post 9 Easy Homemade Christmas Decorations ..., I had put a bow on the Monkey Fist Knot door stopper. The buoy clearly needed a bow too! It hangs from the staircase by the entry. And that's my crafty homemade Christmas tour! I'm so glad you stopped by! White Space White Space
