Our downstairs half-bath is inspired by the beach. The main feature in our bathroom is the starfish wall decor that we tried to make look like the wall decorations at a local soap shop. The starfish wall decor was so easy and relatively inexpensive, but they make a big impact in our small half-bath.
We found starfish to purchase online that were cheaper than going to a local beach or shell shop. We wanted a variety of starfish to make the wall more interesting, so we ordered starfish of different sizes, colors, and shapes. To get the starfish to hang on the wall, we used Gorilla Glue to attach tacks to the back of the starfish.
This was the first time I ever used Gorilla Glue, so I went a little overboard. Thankfully, it is not noticeable when the starfish are attached to the wall. To get a pattern that we liked, I taped some pieces of newspaper together and laid it out on the floor. I then arranged the starfish into a pattern I liked. When the pattern looked good, I punched holes through the newspaper to mark where the starfish would attach. I then taped the newspaper to the wall and made holes in the wall with the tacks through the holes in the newspaper. I then took the newspaper down and attached the starfish to wall.
