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.
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.
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.
Close up of Pottery Barn’s Christmas Tree 2014. Do you see the beach life guard chair ornament dangling?
Another idea for a DIY beach ornament. Clear glass ornament with vinyl lettering by Heart Song, an Etsy store.
Create beach Christmas jars, using ball ornaments and collected treasures. Original source unknown.
Lanterns also make great display cases. Via The Inspired Room.
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.
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.
Hang Anthropologie’s Driftwood Shelf Tree and display beach finds and ornaments. A clever idea that I think works year round.
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.
Simple Beach Burlap Stocking by Mary B Decorative Art, ready to be stuffed with treats, gifts and gadgets.
Bring Holiday cheer to the bathroom with Kohl’s whimsical Beach Christmas Bath Towels.
Be Merry mugs from my Christmas collection on Zazzle.
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.
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.
