Decorative Ways Of Using Starfish Around The Home

There’s so many ways that you can decorate your home with starfish, you don’t have to live by the sea, but you can bring the sea to where you live!

Here I’ve used hanging starfish to decorate my favourite coastal photo frames.

It’s really easy to hang a starfish, all you need to do is tie a piece of leather, ribbon or craft string around one of the starfish legs and form a loop with a knot.

Here’s a close up of one of my hanging starfish available for sale at my Folksy shop.

I love my coastal driftwood frame that I found at a recent car boot sale!

Starfish look great just propped up anywhere around the home, especially in the bathroom.

I think starfish look great in groups, here I have filled a bucket.

I love to paint starfish and think this one works perfectly with my coastal bowl. I hope that this post will inspire you to bring a bit of the coast into your home.

Striped Starfish Tutorial – Hanging Starfish and Fridge Magnet

Pink Striped Hanging Starfish

For this tutorial you will need: a starfish, masking tape, scissors, paint and ribbon.

Start by placing your masking tape over your starfish, make sure this is securely in place or else the paint may leak underneath! You will need to cut the tape between the starfish legs, make sure you do this neatly, making sure the tape is tightly wrapped so you get a nice straight edge.

A quick break to feed the cats Oliver (the ginger ninja!) & Alfie (Alfie is a girl by the way!)

I decided to use a pale pink paint for my hanging starfish, I wanted a pretty subtle effect!

If you’re impatient just like me you can use a hair dryer to speed up the drying process!

This is my favourite part, time to peel off the masking tape!

Ta dah! I used cream lace to hang my starfish, you can use what ever you like.

Striped Starfish Fridge Magnet

For my fridge magnet I wanted to use a coastal colour, I used Farrow & Ball paint, Arsenic

These starfish look great in bowls or loose as a bathroom decoration as shown below

As an alternative to hanging your starfish you can make it magnetic so you can stick it to your fridge.

I had to use two magnets as my starfish was not flat. If you don’t have two magnets you can use anything from a piece of wood to some cork to fill the gap and then stick your magnet on to that.

I have a glue gun because I do lots of craft, if you don’t have one you can use craft glue

I held the magnet down for about a minute making sure it was firmly in place.

My starfish is now brightening up the dull dishwasher! Have fun making yours and send me a picture when you’re done!
