Nautical Starfish Wall Art

Create DIY wall art worthy of the high seas with this charming project. Nautical Starfish Wall Art is one of the classiest decorative crafts that kids can make, and it's easier to make than you might think. Kids will only need a little help from an adult to complete this beach craft project. Kids can make this home decor craft for their bedroom, or they can make Nautical Starfish Wall Art to remember the family vacation to the beach.

Nautical Starfish Wall Art


  • 9 wooden rulers
  • 2 paint stir sticks
  • 5 white twigs (You can use twigs from your yard, strip off the bark and paint them white.)
  • 1 pebble
  • Americana Paint: Pebble, Toffee and Sea Glass
  • Wood glue
  • Heavy duty scissors
  • Turbo Tacky Glue
  • Paintbrush
  • Sandpaper (240 grit)


  1. Paint three of the rulers light brown, three of them tan, and the last three green. To get a more rustic look, do not clean your paintbrush between colors. A little mixing gives it character.

  2. When dry, use sandpaper to rough up the edges a little and sand off some of the excess paint. This will allow a bit of the writing to show through from the rulers.
  3. When all nine rules are lined up together to make the plaque, they will measure approximately 9 1/2-inches. Measure your paint stir sticks to about 9-inches and trim off the excess.
  4. Apply wood glue to the paint sticks and lay them on a flat surface next to each other with about 7-inches in between them.

  5. Starting at the bottom, lay a painted ruler onto the paint stir sticks and keep stacking them upward until all rulers are in place.

  6. Use Turbo Tacky Glue to glue the white sticks in the shape of a starfish to the center of the plaque. Glue a pebble to the center of the star. Allow everything to dry before displaying.
