I have seen shell garlands in several places and I decided I wanted to create my own.
I just started with a cotton rope and strung it up across the mantel.
I used a jute rope and started tying the shells, starfish, and sand dollars in a pattern.
Each item had a feature about it that naturally you could tie the string to. I didn't drill any holes to do this.
I plan to get a multi-season of uses out of this because I am going to try it in a coastal Christmas garland this winter.
Thanks for stopping by!
I will join these lovely blogs, go over and check them out.
