I’m excited about this little beachy craft because it’s something a little different. For a couple months I was planning on being in Florida this weekend doing a Facebook live on this with the palm trees in the back round – Unfortunately our trip was postponed, but it will even be better once we have enough of winter! Anyway you just don’t get quite the same feel here in the Midwest doing the “Beach
themed craft, but it never hurts to bring a little warmth here in the cold weather. If you miss my Facebook live you can watch it here:
Anyway we moved a couple years ago and I’ve been looking for cute little nautical ideas to decorate my home with since I’m trying to stick with the nautical theme. I thought this was such a cute idea for a little area in the house to hang this canvas. My plan was is to put it in the bathroom or laundry room/mud room. Here are the Supplies you’ll need and the steps on how I made this.
1 – 8 x 10 Canvas
4 Shades of Teal Acrylic Paints
Gray and White Acrylic Paint
Twin or Nautical Rope
I painted a little gray in the corners and blended it in.

for the Driftwood. You’ll have enough to do three or four canvases or just save it for another craft! For Only $9.99 it’s a great deal!
Arrange it where you’re leaving enough space at the top for the starfish and enough at the bottom to put the stem of the tree.
….and it’s finished and ready to find a home!
This is such a great craft to do with kids as they can arrange their own pieces into the shape of a Christmas tree. My son decided to do his a little different. It’s not exactly like the Christmas tree I tried to teach him, but I’m happy he’s got a mind of his own. 🙂
Have a great rest of the long weekend and happy beach crafting!
