DIY Nautical Wedding Decor Gifts

Creating your own nautical wedding decor has never been easier.  These jars filled with seashells would be the perfect gift option for someone who loves the sea and for nautical themed wedding centerpieces.  They are very simple to make and only take two steps to complete, well three if you want to count gathering the shells.  All you need are some little jars.  The ones I used here are about 3 and 4 inches.  If you have a bunch of shells and can fill a larger jar, then that works too - The sizes and shapes of the jars can vary.

After you have your jars, you'll need some shells.  My family and I lived at the beach for a short period, and while we were there, we spent a lot of time collecting.  They've just been stuffed away in a shoebox, and I decided it was time to do something creative with them.

To get this look, all you need to do is fill the jars with the sea shells - it's that simple!  You end up with some fantastic, diy nautical decor that you can either give as a gift this Christmas, or keep for your own home. These would also be perfect for centerpiece accents, wedding decor, or given away as wedding favors.  I haven't quite decided what I'll do with them yet - keep them or enjoy them.  How will you use them?


  1. I do think hiring a wedding planner is quite necessary if you have enough budget and it's a medium or large wedding with at least 100 wedding guests!
