Beach Themed DIY Home Decor.
I’m a huge fan of coastal decor, and nothing says “chill out here” like a home decorated in blues, greens, whites, and weathered grays. Those colors are instantly calming and relaxing! Like a good beach vacation! And what can be better than a little DIY decor? Store-bought, factory-made décor can be lovely and charming, and can also be crazy expensive! And as any crafter knows, when you see something you love, you can usually make it yourself for less. So we’ve found 20 DIY Beach Inspired Home Decor Projects so you can add a coastal vibe to your home on a budget!

20 DIY Beach Inspired Home Decor Projects
Beach-inspired home decor is not just adorable, it also gives you the feeling you are on vacation. We all love vacations, right? Once you incorporate some of these ideas into your home’s decor, you may never want to leave! Here are a few tips that will help you along the way.
- Keep an eye out for seashells. You can go buy them at your local craft store, but you can get them even cheaper if you look for them at yard sales, estate sales, and consignment shops. Beach-inspired home decor doesn’t have to be expensive!
- When you do take a vacation to the beach, collect seashells! It’s even more pleasing when you can decorate your home with items you have gotten while on vacation. It’s so much better than keeping everything in a box that you look at every few years.
- Use other inexpensive items for decorating. You can get several candlesticks, Mason jars, driftwood sticks, and other items for next to nothing and in some cases even free. Why not collect those items instead of going out and buying a bunch of new things.
