If you’ve been visiting me here for very long, you know that I love coastal decor. Living in a coastal city means that there are always shops that have lots of coastal Christmas decor. The problem with some of those is that their products can be pricey. The solution – make my own!
Starfish Christmas Ornaments DIY
To make these starfish ornaments, I gathered up various ribbon, baubles, and several starfish that I had in my craft stash.
I found this pack of charms in my craft stash that I knew would work well for these ornaments. Michaels always has a great selection of charms. I bought two packs of these last year to use for a bracelet I made my granddaughter and I had some left over.
I tested a couple of different gauges of jewelry wire to see which one worked best. I went with 26 gauge.
Out of the four that I made, this one turned out to be my favorite. I like the contrasting colors of the starfish. I used paper rope around the top and for the hanger. Then I glued the light colored starfish to the darker one. A charm is secured with jewelry wire and a paper rope bow is tied around both of the starfish.
To give each one of them a different look, I used an assortment of colors and ribbons. For this one, I attached ribbon loops to the larger starfish with hot glue and then added the smaller one. It’s embellished with a small silver starfish.
For this one, I used only one starfish embellished with two charms, paper rope, and another silver starfish. I used jewelry wire to secure the charm to the starfish.
Using baker’s twine, I wrapped the top of this starfish and added cream colored ribbon loops to the center. The center is topped with twine bows and a pearl bead.
You can make these in minutes and if you use items you might have on hand like ribbon, beads, and charms, they are very budget friendly.
I’ll be sharing a coastal Christmas tree soon and I can’t wait to see how these DIY Starfish Ornaments are going to look on it.
