Coral Collection

I have had the opportunity to go snorkeling several times in the Caribbean and see beautiful corals in their natural habitat.  They are truly amazing in their variety.

To add some whimsy to the display, starfish in vases were added.

Summers seem so short now that children go back to school in the middle of August.  I'm going to keep my coral display up till college football kickoff to make the summer stretch out for me. 

You may have already figured it out, but most all my 'coral' is made from the floral department  at Hobby Lobby, a couple of cans of Great Stuff Foam, and paint. If you want to try making your own
faux coral too click on the highlighted text below...


  1. What a beautiful display! I love all the sand dollars!

  2. Absolutely gorgeous! And that console table they are sitting on is stunning! :-)

  3. Beautiful display. I used to scuba dive, I thought that you had collected real coral, at first, and was "worried" for the environment. I'm glad this beautiful display shows the beauty of coral without harming it.


  4. The coral is awesome...I totally thought it was the real thing! I love the cabinet it's all sitting on too.

  5. I am in love with your coral display and I am excited to see how you made these with foam. Thanks for linking to the Open House party this week.
