I just can't help myself! I made another seashell garland and I love this one soooooo much more than the last one which I loved!
This one is a near perfect replica of the one I saw in the fancy-schmancy decorator shop on vacation.
I bought the starfish and the scallop shells at the boardwalk seashell shop and used some ribbon I already had. If I make another one (yes, I have more shells), I think I'll use a different kind of ribbon.
The fun part was using my hubby's Dremmel to drill holes in the starfish and the shells to slide the ribbon through. I used the tile cutter bit and it made perfect holes. That's a handy little tool!
I slid ribbon through the holes and tied little knots on each side to keep the pieces in place.
Don't you think these would make beautiful decorations for a beachy wedding?
One more thing...Do you see the dresser that I hung the garland on? That is proof positive that I do not spray paint absolutely everything. :-) That dresser was my father-in-law's when he was a little boy. I love everything about it...every knick, every scratch, every dent.
