    These were so simple to make. I think they will be just the right amount of decor for the aisle of a beach ceremony!







    I bought my starfish at Michael's. It was one big package of "starfish garland" so I just cut the garland apart and used one starfish per decoration. I also bought the Raffia at Michael's. I had a coupon so all said and done this project probably cost me $15.


    All I did was cut the raffia to a length that seemed good, then twisted it at the top to create a "handle." I then tied it in place with a spare piece of raffia (which you will have plenty of....that stuff will be ALL over your floor). Then I tied the starfish and ribbon on and voila: Easy!!





    I plan to hang one on each "end" chair going down the aisle. 

    This was my inspiration:


    CREATOR: gd-jpeg v1.0 (using IJG JPEG v62), quality = 100


    You'd be shocked to see what these things go for on Etsy, so I think for $15 total I'm happy with how mine turned out! I made 10 total. 


    Happy Planning, ladies! Let me know if you have any questions!

                    omg you make it sound so easy! I saw this on etsy but just couldn't bring myself to spend what they were pricing them at! But with Michael's coupons, I can make them cheaper, thank you!
