Each Friday, starting today, I’m sharing the best DIY nautical decor tutorials that I’ve collected from some of my favorite craft and design bloggers. Today’s theme? DIY Starfish Decorations!
I love nautical decor! Maybe it has to do with living at the shore, maybe it has to do with spending so many years living in New England, or maybe it has to do with my love of sea-faring books. Whatever the reason, I’m so happy to see the nautical trend in full swing in all the stores and home decor catalogs. And I’m even happier that there’s so many creative tutorials out there to make your own beach-themed decorations. I love how this coastal decor trend conveys a relaxed, easy-going vibe, because that’s exactly how we live here on the Jersey shore!
DIY Starfish Decorations!
Sometimes you are lucky enough to find a starfish on the beach, but most often you’ll have better luck finding them at a craft store. Or, you can use this cool tutorial to make your own:

The different sizes and textures of the starfish used in this garland are what makes it so unique:
