mussel wreaths

Last year our brilliant window designer, Kathryn, decorated our shop fronts with these amazing seashell wreaths. They were so popular that we put a ‘how to’ video together, which also went down a storm, so we’re sharing it again this year. It’s the perfect guide to creating a very seaside take on the traditional Christmas decoration. Enjoy!

boat building

posted on December 9th, 2011 by Emma

Here at Seasalt we love all things nautical and what’s more nautical than a fleet of boats?  We’re a little too busy to make a real fleet of boats so here is our office alternative made in paper. We came up with some alternative uses for your personal fleet:

  • Racing, whether in a stream or setting out to sea.
  • Name places, with all the festive feasts this season they are perfect for keeping your guests organised.
  • Sweets dishes. A great alternative use for your dining table.
  • A variation on the traditional party hat.
  • Attach some thread and they can hang off your Christmas tree.
