Who’s ready for a quick project? My girl Angie at The Country Chic Cottage, along with Carolina at Moore Craft Time are hosting 2 weeks of 15 minute crafts, and of course I had to do one for her! When I first told her my idea, I thought it might be too simple… but she loved it and so I’m going to share one of my best shop sellers ever – Hanging Starfish. I don’t make these any longer – but still get requests for them – so I hope this tutorial will help!
Don’t worry – it’s really not a 15 minute project – it’s more like a 15 second project – seriously! You’ll need starfish – any size, any shape, pick your poison. I’ve scoured the internets and the best price and customer service I’ve found is at QualityShells.com.
You’ll also need some of these little triangle hangers. I got them at Hobby Lobby, about $2 for a pack of 16. Notice that they have a curved bit and a flat side – remember that, m’kay? Oh! and a hot glue gun – don’t forget your trusty hot glue gun!
Second: you’re ready for the glue. If your starfish has thicker legs, you can put it on a leg. For the smaller starfish, put your glue in the middle. Dry fit the hanger to make sure that it will be hidden behind the starfish to decide where to put your glue dot.
