Go seasonal with sea shell arrangements for staging & redesign touches that are easy, quick and inexpensive. I find these projects are something anyone can do, even the kids can get creative and have fun!
When using creative ideas forstaginga home it's done to keep the home buyers interested and linger a bit longer. Ideal furniture & accessory placements are utilized to enhance the property, it helps most buyers envision a lifestyle for themselves. Then for the redesign clients, the ideas are something they can remember and do it themselves when the next summer season rolls around.
Here are a few seasonal ideas with sea shell arrangements!
Layer the natural color sand then add a black layer, I swirled mine to give it a windswept look. Then I added another layer of the natural sand topped off w/ an assortment of shells.
You can make the burnished shells yourself by adding a smidge of of craft store wax here and there on the shell (it comes in a small pot & I used a burnished silver color) then lightly mist it with silver paint. Wherever you put the colored wax your sliver paint won't stick to the parts you've put the wax on. Then lightly sponge off the excess paint and wait for it to dry. Or you can just go buy them to make it easier!
Add some sea grass to a sand & shell arrangement by twisting the grass before putting it in to give it a wispy look.
Close up of above the composition...hey I spy something blue in there. How about you?
Sea Life arrangement in wooden bowl. Add sand, glass pebbles (which brings to mind of water droplets), an assortment of shells and a few starfish. I added a paperweight with a sea life theme to vary the height.
Close up of the sea life...I feel the cool breeze already!
