I saw this idea in a magazine and thought it would be fun to make for the beach cottage. My husband and I were out kayaking last weekend and found this board washed up on a beach. I knew it was perfect for this project so I put in my kayak and paddled back. Today a painted it aqua blue and hot glued the starfish on...super easy. We have a nice supply of starfish for $2.00 each at Joyworks.
