You can change the decor to suit a coastal theme by adding a shell to the front of the ball jars. You can use either be a clam shell or a white finger starfish. You can glue the shell right on to the rope for a coastal setting. The green ball jars can carry you into Spring and Easter by replacing the baby’s breath with either tulips or daffodils. A great look and can continuously be refreshed from season to season!

The shell center gives it a beach look that goes well with the green floral decor.
The Thrifty Hurricane is a beautiful centerpiece that is incredible easy to make. The instructions are by Two Twenty One. The candle centerpieces use split peas at the base of the hurricane lamp.
