Wire Crafts -Starfish & Wire Stand

Shop Coastal Decor

I had fun doing some wire crafts, bending up starfish and more!

wire starfish
You can use wire starfish the same way you use real starfish. Scatter them around to create beachy tablescapes, attach them to wreaths, make garlands, or simply Hang them with Twine. Here I had them dangle from my dining room chandelier.


how to bend wire
To help you bend the wire, draw the starfish onto a piece of wood, then hammer in nails. Use nails without heads so you can easily remove the starfish.

wire crafts
You will have to tweak each starfish a little. The opening allowed me to easily hook the starfish to the chandelier.

All starfish are spray painted gold.

wire starfish garland
This is where they are hanging now. As a garland between the kitchen windows over the sink.

wire stand
And inspired by this cute wire stand...

small wire stand
I created my own. Bending the wire stand wasn't quite as easy as I thought!

decorative wire for vases and pots
And if you give a starfish some extra wire for a stem, you can add it to a vase or pot.

I love this idea too! A wire starfish is attached to a driftwood stick. Seen at New England Trading Company. They call it a Whimsical Driftwood Wand!

wire crafts
And some of you might recall. I did bend up a few cute and bouncy wire trees too. They were featured in a Coastal Mix post (now discontinued). We had one of those street cones in the basement and I used the top of it to help me bend the cone shape. Then I attached a piece of seaglass on top. Easy breezy wire crafts!

Amazing Maya-very unique and creative. What size wire did you use?

Very creative. I know you said bending the wire was a little more challenging, but this looks like something even someone like me could actually do, and it would be easy to incorporate various sea finds (shells, sea glass, driftwood, even sharks teeth maybe) into the design.
