150 Coastal DIY Home Decor Ideas

Give your home a coastal feel on a budget with these DIY coastal home decor ideas. From coastal art to coastal furniture ideas, there are over a hundred ways to add a seaside vibe to every part of your home. There are DIY coastal decorations for your living room, bedroom, bathroom, dining room, porch and much more.

I live in Florida so I am able to find many of the supplies for these DIY projects like shells, sand and wood for free. However, if you don’t live near the beach, then you can still find these items at Dollar Tree and craft stores.

Materials You Can Get at Dollar Tree:

  • bag of shells
  • twine
  • burlap
  • sand
  • candles
  • glass vases
  • glass candleholders

Supplies You May Need:

  • glue gun and glue sticks
  • mod podge
  • paint or foam brushes
  • adhesive  (super glue, e6000, etc)
  • sandpaper
  • craft knife
  • scissors
  • tape

For the projects that require pallets, you can get them for free on Craigslist or Facebook Marketplace. You will need some basic woodworking skills and tools like saw, sandpaper, drill, nails and hammer for those DIY projects.

For projects that use driftwood, here is a great article about how to preserve and sanitize it.
