Seashell Winter Planters
Using seashells collected over the years, pine & holly branches from around the yard – this DIY decorating idea is also budget-friendly being absolutely free!
Let those sweet seashells bring reminders of the fabulous Summer to come.
I love a good, resourceful DIY and this is one showcases seashells we have collected as a family as well as having the added benefit of costing zero dollars to make!
It is a fun way to spend some time outdoors and make something pretty to greet you every time you walk through the front door.
We already had two concrete planters given to us from Eric’s mom, Linda, a while ago, and they have scallop shells on them so it echos the seashell/ocean theme.
I mentioned these on my Instagram feed below a while back and I am so glad to finally share them here on the blog!
Below is a collage showing the process of putting together these Seashell Winter Planters which involves gathering branches from our holly and pine trees which needed some pruning.
We then cleared the dead Fall plants in our concrete planters and stuck the larger pine tree branches in the soil, making a "fan" arrangement.
We arranged the remaining holly branches sticking in the soil and laying across to cover the soil.
Lastly, we stuck the seashells in the branches evenly and centered across the front edge.
Special thanks to my husband Eric for doing the pruning for this post!
