Just because you live on the coast doesn’t mean you can’t celebrate Christmas like everyone else! Here are 12 hacks to creating a coastal Christmas that is sure to be magical. Check out these DIY coastal Christmas decorations!
DIY Coastal Christmas Decorations
Every home needs a beautiful Christmas tree! Decorate your coastal themed Christmas tree with blue shades, silver ornaments, and a burlap garland. Add seashells throughout the whole tree, and a coastal inspired Christmas tree topper.
I always decorate my staircase with a garland, but I have the hardest time finding a beachy garland! Buy the one pictured using the link above, or create one yourself by using nautical rope and seashell ornaments! Add a sprig of greenery to tie the whole garland together.
Driftwood is my favorite aspect of coastal decor. It’s incredibly versatile, and if you’re lucky enough to live by the coast, you have a plethora of wood for no cost at all! Don’t be afraid to decorate using pieces of salvaged driftwood. In fact, you could make this Noel Christmas sign just by gluing pieces of wood together! Such a simple DIY! Add a life preserver accessory for the ‘O’.
Isn’t this snowman from Pier 1 Imports absolutely perfect? It’s a perfect example of how to use traditional Christmas decor pieces in a holiday coastal theme. This would look great propped on a mantle piece, or on a window sill. Wherever you decide to put him, you can’t go wrong!
I cannot get over these adorable Christmas throw pillows (click the link above for information on where to purchase!) I’ve always used throw pillows as a decorative accent in my Christmas decor, and these would look perfect! You could always put them on your patio furniture for a touch of outdoor holiday spirit, weather permitting, of course!
Coastal Christmas Wreath
Porch decor is a necessary aspect when it comes to curb appeal! Decorate yours for Christmas with a coastal inspired wreath! The blues of the flowers, and the seashells add that desired touch of the ocean, while the sprigs of pine needles tie everything together. Get a similar wreath available for purchase here.
Sea glass is absolutely gorgeous, and it’s such a versatile decorating tool. Create small Christmas trees using pieces of sea glass, seashells, or anything else that seems coastal to you! Use a left over yarn spindle as the basis for your tree, and hot glue your items around that. Feel free to get creative, and remember that the sea glass doesn’t have to match!
Purchase this gorgeous holiday centerpiece from Etsy. Or, make one yourself! Combine rustic elements like pine cones and snow covered greenery with seashells, and pieces of coral. Who would have thought that you could combine different elements to get something as great as this!
Wooden Buoy Ornaments
These wooden buoy ornaments are perfect for your coastal Christmas tree. Use pieces of scrap wood and some nautical rope to create the basis for the ornament. Paint according to your personal decor taste. You could always enlist the help of your kids to help paint! It would be such a fun family project!
Similar to the sea glass Christmas trees, you could create twine Christmas trees using an empty (or full!) yarn spindle. Use pieces of ribbon to add decor pieces!
Holiday Themed Wine Bag
A cute idea for a neighbor gift, purchase these holiday wine bags from Etsy. They’re totally adorable, and your friends can use them for years to come!
