A couple of weeks ago I bought a new comforter set and I just love how that one thing can transform a room into something you never thought of. The comforter is a light teal, with pastel yellow, pink and taupe.

It just screamed Key West to me, (or maybe it’s the fact that I am sick of winter and need a vacation.) So I decided to make my bedroom a coastal retreat. What can be more peaceful than that?

I found this great reclaimed wood grill type thing, that reminded me of a lobster crate and I just went with it. I made a sweet starfish garland and hung it on the crate wall hanging and voila! I now have a coastal retreat right in my bedroom!

Here’s how I put it all together:

Take randomly sized starfish and tie strings of twine around each of them. Add hot glue the twine to the starfish for strength. Loop a piece of twine across your board and tie the starfish onto it.

Hot glue twine to scallop shells. Cut a long piece of twine and tie the starfish and shells randomly across the twine.

Lopp the garland over the wall hanging. Find a great wide mouth jar and fill it with sand then add random shells. And that’s it!
