DIY Pottery Barn Aegean Beach Hurricanes

I did a blog on this idea a while back while we were building the house.  I thought I'd share the finished product.  I wanted a subtle beach theme in the kids' bathroom but not a cheesy one.  When I took a trip to Pottery Barn I fell in love with these......

You want to know what I didn't fall in love with?  The price!!  Wow these things were pricey and I mean REALLY pricey.  Sooooo, I headed to the dollar store and Home Goods and here are MY Aegean Beach Hurricanes.

I think both of the hurricanes were $5.99 and the shells were $7.99.  I did break down and buy the sand from Pottery Barn and found the twine in a bag from Jake's Daniel Boone costume.  Not too shabby if I do say so myself!


  1. I am always so inspired by Pottery Barn, but they can be expensive. Glad you were able to create the look for a lot less.
