Beach Christmas Decorations & Ideas Inspired by Sea, Sand & Shells

If you are like me, the beach is always on your mind, and it is definitely part of your holiday decor. So I put together a collection of favorite beach Christmas decorations and ideas, inspired by sea, sand, shells, and simplicity.

These super cute Adirondack chairs are a perfect Christmas tree ornament! Pick between turquoise, aqua or white colors. Check them out here. 

Another super cute ornament! I love the color of this one along with the silver sand dollar and the rope at the top. Will look great on any tree! Pick this up from Etsy here.

Beach Christmas Ornament
Make one of a kind beach Christmas ornaments, filling Clear Ball Ornaments with tiny shells, shell fragments and a bit of sand. And for an unexpected twist, add a little Beach Sign. Original source unknown.

Beach Christmas Decorations from Pottery Barn
You can always count on Pottery Barn for beach inspiration. I adore the mini bottle beach ornament, and the glitter resin starfish makes for a striking tree topper.

Another idea for a DIY beach ornament. Clear glass ornament with vinyl lettering by Heart Song, an Etsy store.

Blue Christmas Jars
Create a beachy Christmas display with Blue Mason Jars. Fill them with just enough beach sand that you can stick a Candle inside. Via Hymns and Verses.

Decorating with Blue and Silver Christmas Ornaments
Blue and Silver Christmas Ornaments sparkle like the sea and the blue summer sky. Fill a bowl or a cookie tray. Via Love of Family and Home.

Beach Christmas Jars
Create beach Christmas jars, using ball ornaments and collected treasures. Original source unknown.

Lanterns also make great display cases. Via The Inspired Room.

Blue Christmas Ball Wreath with Flamingo
Or how about making a fun beachy Christmas wreath with Turquoise Blue Ball Ornaments and a Pink Plastic Flamingo? Made by Snappy Turtle, a retail store in Delray, FL.

Colorful Beach Christmas Tree
Celebrate Christmas with all the beach and summer colors you can think of. I love how all the ornaments are arranged by color. This stunning Christmas tree was Kohl’s tree in 2013 from their St. Nicholas Square Collection. Unfortunately these fun ornaments are not on their site this year. But you can shop for Seahorse Ornaments and other Colorful Beach Theme Ornaments on Amazon.

Gone to the Beach Santa Ornament
Santa loves the beach too. This cute Gone to the Beach Santa Ornament is one of many beach Christmas decorations from Mary B Decorative Art.

White Beach Christmas Tree
Go bright with white. White Christmas Trees look gorgeous in a Shabby Chic and White Beach Cottage environment. But no matter what color your Christmas tree is, why not have some fun with whimsical Beach Ornaments from Midwest CBK (a design company that creates products for the Holidays). The mini beach signs are too cute. Also check out Kohl’s Welcome to the Beach Ornament that comes as a set and includes a dolphin and sea turtle ornament.

Flip Flop Ornaments
Another whimsical idea. Pay homage to your Favorite Summer Footwear. Flip Flop Ornaments!

Driftwood Shelf Tree
Hang Anthropologie’s Driftwood Shelf Tree and display beach finds and ornaments. A clever idea that I think works year round.

Mini Beach Christmas Tree
Get a darling mini Christmas tree for the kitchen counter top, a side table, or for a table centerpiece. Adorn it with your own beach finds and Christmas ornaments, just like these Marvellous Mini Trees. Mini live trees with lights or starfish are sold at LLBean. For a large selection of artificial Christmas trees, head over to Kohl’s and Target.

Beach Christmas Stockings
Simple Beach Burlap Stocking by Mary B Decorative Art, ready to be stuffed with treats, gifts and gadgets.

Burlap Christmas Tree Skirt
Create a neutral sandy backdrop for your Nicely Wrapped Gifts with a Burlap Christmas Tree Skirt.

Beach Christmas Bath Towels

Be Merry Beach Christmas Mugs with Starfish

Christmas table with beach letter sign
Decking out the table for a Christmas dinner party can be as simple as spreading Christmas ornaments along with a few shells. To beach it up even more, add a Beach Word Sign! Design by Tammy Mitchell for a California style Christmas Party.

Beach Christmas Sign
And lastly, artsy beach Christmas decorations for the wall. I found this adorable wood sign on Etsy, made by The Shabby Scrapper.

Enjoy the season! Picture featured here.
