When you live somewhere like Kaua’i, sometimes you don’t always feel like you can be in the most festive, typical-holiday mood. But this Christmas, you can incorporate the coastal vibe!
There is plenty of decorations and design ideas for people who live in tropical places like the Garden Island. Here are some options for you to read through!
Braid a Beachy Wreath
Bring the seaside to your front door, entryway or fireplace with an easy-to-craft coastal wreath. If you can braid, you can make the rope's base, which you'll top with starfish, shells and faux greenery. Use a coastal-chic wreath instead of a standard holiday wreath, or display it year-round and mix in a few shatterproof ornaments for a Christmas fix-up on the fly.
Spell It Out
Give weathered wood planks a holiday update by cutting the boards into rectangular planks. Choose your holiday greeting, then customize each board with handpainted letters, styling the O's like captain's wheels, the S's as ropes and the J's as anchors. For a laid-back look, temporarily lean the letters against the wall, or to properly hang them, add picture hooks to the back.
Beach Towel Stockings
If you're handy with a sewing machine, turn last summer's beach towels into nubby stockings, customizing them to suit each family member!
Sub Shells for Flowers
For small DIY tabletop arrangements that you don't have to water, create bouquets of conch shells. Start with a low, wide-mouthed container like a large sugar jar. Fill the perimeter with sprigs of greenery, then arrange three to five conch shells in the center.
Take Holiday Celebrations Outdoors
Weather permitting, Christmas Eve is best enjoyed with good people, great food, bubbly booze and unobstructed ocean views in the sun!
There are so many more tips for you, here!
BOTTOM LINE: If you find yourself living in Kaua’i or another tropical place this holiday season, join in on the coastal decorating vibe!
