A Nautical Christmas Tree

I was inspired by the hemp line that I use in the shop to create Nautical displays on my tables.

I propped this license plate lighthouse in the tree and the license plate reflects in the dark like a lighthouse should!!

I didn't buy a thing for this tree, I had it all in my shop and in my collection of ornaments.

The fun part of decorating this tree was using the large nautical pieces for ornaments.

I have huge scallop shells from Florida and Stars from Sea Bags. I hung my mermaid, fish and Pelican from Fernadina Beach. I stuck a Nantucket basket and nets filled with driftwood here and there. Flags, lanterns and brass anchors fill it out and give it a seaside charm.

When I get home I am going to add a Starfish to the top of the tree!

Wishing you a seaside Merry Christmas from Anchor Cottage.
