Christmas Sea urchin

A little earlier, I told you that I managed to make a little Christmas decoration this weekend. Voila.

This is my little sea urchin that I made over the weekend. What do you think? And please be honest. Would you put this guy on your Christmas tree? 

It all started when I was looking at this ornament on our advent calendar. (below)

It reminded me of this post that I saw on apartment therapy's craft at Anthropologie, (link here). All you need is a foam ball, toothpicks, dye or spray paint. They recommend you go around the ball (equator) and then perpendicular to that and last you fill the empty spaces (or quadrants).

I figured I would make the craft and then spray paint the toothpicks and add some glitter. I spray painted mine white, but you can paint yours any color, silver, gold. They dyed the toothpicks in the post, but since I wanted mine white, I had to spray paint them. 

I am not 100% sure if they will stay on the tree, but I will see how it looks with all the Christmas decorations on. Hope they are not too big for our tree. Would love to know what you think of these on a Christmas tree. B


  1. Very creative! And whimsical at the same time, I love your idea.

  5. It's awesome! I found you over at Completely Coastal, now I'm going to give this a go. How did you attach it to your tree?
