Here are some simple touches that can make any room feel like seaside cottage.

1. DIY beach glass bottles

These pretty DIY bottles are made from wine and liquor bottles painted to look like sea glass.  If you don’t have much room for displaying decor, why not apply the technique to DIY containers for liquid soap or cooking oil?

2. Driftwood decor

This DIY craft project makes a good way to show off beach souvenirs collected during your travels and would look pretty hung in a window where it catches the light.

(If your beach combing adventures haven’t been so lucky, you can also buy driftwood and sea glass fairly inexpensively.)

You can also use driftwood to make a shelf like this one.  Museum putty can be used to secure decorative items to the shelf during travel.

3. Hooks

The uses in an RV for this DIY driftwood project are endless.

Other hook rack options include this cute sandal peg rack and this starfish coat rack.

These hooks could be used alone or for making a coat/towel rack like the ones pictured above.

4. Fish netting

Fish netting could be draped from the ceiling or used as a window valance.

Fish netting can also be used to make these pretty candle holders.  Find out how to make them here.

5. Rope

Rope can be incorporated into nautical or beach decor in multiple ways.

Instructions for making this rope mirror can be found here.

These curtains are made from a painter’s drop cloth and hung on a rope using clip curtain rings are reminiscent of old sails.

6. Porthole

Have a blank wall? A porthole mirror or clock might provide the finishing touch.


7. Beachfront view

A wall decal can give you a beach view no matter where you are.

8. Sea colors

11. Plank walls
