Summer Sea Shell Table Decor

Hi  there!  It’s Kathy from Up to Date Interiors and I’m back to share a quick and easy Summer DIY with you today. Last month I shared DIY napkin rings embellished with coral I picked up from our local beach.  This time, I gathered more beach finds and went through my floral bin to put together a Summer Sea Shell Table Decor.  


Here’s what you need: 

  • A large sea shell (if you have one – otherwise you could fill a shallow bowl, basket, bin, or tray)
  • Decorative moss and faux flowers
  • Sea shells 


We found this shell shortly after we moved to Okinawa close to our house.  Lucky! 


Put it together:

Fill the large shell with moss. 


Trim the flower stems so they are 2-3 inches long (or longer is your container is deeper).  sea-shell-moss-flower-step

Stick them into the moss.


Add smaller sea shells (or coral) around the flowers.  


Place on a table for instant prettiness! 

I have a lot of green and white in our living area so this piece fit right in.
