Most of my Christmas decorations will have a coastal theme to them this year. I was asked by a family member why coastal when I don't live by the sea? I love to change up my themes for Christmas and coastal is a theme I love anyway. It is also really easy to pull off with out a big investment in decor you will only have out for maybe four weeks a year.
So to create an ornament with any shell or starfish, try raffia. You can find it in any crafting section of most stores. The raffia just needs to be looped around one finger of the starfish like pictured above.
Pull the raffia snug and it "grips" the starfish.
Tie a knot in the end of the raffia for the desired length of string.
