Beach Wedding or party Centerpieces

Beautiful Centerpieces for your tables with a Beach theme.

Surround your
custom candles with the look of the beach. Seashells and starfish are going to make your guests remember your beautiful tables.
Easy & inexpensive to make yourself.

Custom Beach theme Candles with the Bride & Groom's name works the best for these.

Materials: Alot of these I have found at the Dollar Store & bags of starfish & misc. seashells at Craft stores like Michaels or Hobby Lobby.

•STYROFOAM* Brand Foam:
Wreath, 6" x 1-1/4" x 1-1/4"
•Seashells, 2" or smaller, about nine assorted pair
•Sea glass, 1" or smaller, pale blue/green/white assortment
•Shells: Misc. small, about 50
•Starfish small... 5 or 6 per centerpiece
•Votive or pillar candle
•Low-temp glue gun and glue sticks
•Thick, white craft glue
•Small starfish, five
•Optional: Matte-finish white spray paint

Shell w/ Sea Glass Rings:
1.Wash and dry shells and sea glass if needed.

2.For formal look (front), glue pairs of shells to foam wreath, opposite one another. Begin with largest shells, moving to smallest. Fill spaces between shells with sea glass.

3.For more casual, natural look (left center), glue a favorite large shell to wreath, then surround with smaller shells and sea glass. Continue until entire top of wreath is covered. Glue sea glass to inner and outer foam edges.

Shell/Starfish Ring:
1.For starfish ring (top), paint turrid shells white if desired; let dry. Glue shells around wreath edge, close together with points up; let dry.

2.Glue large shells to top of wreath, facing one direction and slightly overlapped. Glue starfish to top of shells as shown. Let dry.
