How to Hang a Starfish on a Wall

Starfish make me SMILE! They are a great way to bring the relaxing vibe of the beach into your home. It makes for a fun summer time accent, but how the heck do you hang them on the wall? Well, Here’s my quick tutorial on how to easily hang starfish.

1.  Pick up some starfish, any size or shape works. I  like Hobby Lobby or Michael’s, they usually carry this time of year as starfish is a  trendy summer accent.  You can also find them in the Summer Trunk, which is starfish inspired! Think odd numbers, I like to hang things in 3 or 5’s.

2  Next, you’ll need a picture frame hanger.  They are around $2 a pack and can be picked up at a craft or hardware store. Here’s what they look like.

3. Next pull out your handy dandy glue gun

4.  Decide which direction you would like to hang your starfish and flip it over to the backside to attach the picture hanger.

5.  Use your hot glue gun to drop a dot of glue on one of the fingers of the starfish (make sure this is the direction you would like to hang your starfish) Walk away to let the glue dry, only takes a few minutes. Go pour yourself a Mai Tai  while you are waiting to get ready for your ocean oasis.

6.  You are now ready to hang your starfish. Position the starfish where you would like on the wall, hammer in a little tack nail and hang from the picture hook. Voila, instant vacation!

I’ve been inspired by the starfish this week, so here’s a little of my weekly “Happy Talk.”
