My DIY Beach Themed Christmas

Post at: 12:11 PM

My main living area is decorated in a Beach theme and I’ve always wanted to do a tree that would match the rest of the room (thanks to Esty and Pinterest for giving me the ideas) however whenever I was looking over the years I wasn’t able to find anything (shells, starfish etc) at craft stores or dollar stores. So I went with my backup plan Snowman themed tree.

My luck finally changed earlier this year (YAY!) and I picked up four different bags of shells (didn’t know how many I’d need/how big my tree would be), 5 starfish and a bunch of ribbon. Spent one afternoon cutting the ribbon to the lengths I wanted and going though and picking out all the shells I wanted on the tree and hot gluing the ribbon to those shells. Any of the shells I didn’t use on my tree are on display in a bowl on my coffee table.

Do you have a themed tree?
Single Coloured or Multi lights or White lights on a tree?

I got this blog post idea from Desiree’s blog post and Lisa’s blog post.

PGN CHRISTMAS LIST

Having just retiring some of my paddling gear at the end of the 2014 season, I though this would be a great way to start off a brand new season with brand new gear.

1. White and Red LED lights for my PFD (for night time paddling)
2. An Outrigger Paddle (Nehu Double Bend Hybrid Paddle) – you can never own to many paddles
3. A 1000ml water bottle
4. PFD (life jacket)
5. A mini dry bag for car keys, ID, money, cellphone – that can attach to the PFD or be placed in a pocket
6. Rain Jacket that can be used for paddling or running in
