Amazingly Decorated Trees and More...

Handmade Lighted Decorated Trees and Wreaths

...With Incredible Detail!

Shell Art - Flower Ornaments - Starfish - Sand Dollars - Sea Grass - Lights!

Handcrafted Sea-Themed Decorations by Peter Murfitt

Add warmth, style, and charm to your home all year long with help from Trees by the Sea in Venice, FL. These high-quality artificial evergreen trees are crafted with a personal touch. Each one is decorated with lights, shells, and other coastal items.

The natural elements of my tabletop ornaments are self-foraged. I guarantee that no live sea creatures are ever used or killed in creating these pieces.

Special Orders

When you purchase two trees or wreaths, make sure to leave a note if they’re meant to be a pair and used in a single location. I will make sure they match beautifully. For example, I can make two wreaths to have a mirrored design. The first one will have a bow on the left while the second one has the bow on the right side.

Because all of my pieces are handmade, no two items are exactly the same. I also accept special requests. I cater to local clients in Florida, and will ship throughout the country.

  • Sand Dollar Ornament Tree

    This lovely tree is decorated with lots and lots of sand dollars, found in the shallow waters off the beach of West Florida. Additionally lots of neat looking shells are incorporated. The tree sits in a large welk or horse conch shell.

  • Flower Shell Wreath

    Amaze your friends by having them come to your house and see this fantastic hand-crafted shell flower wreath hanging on your door, or if you have double entry doors, you would probably have two of them. Each detail in this wreath is handcrafted.

  • Magnolia and Buttercup Swag

    How good would this look as a centerpiece on your table? Not only during the Holidays but at any time of the year.

    The white flowers are completely made from very delicate shells that mimic flower petals.

Schedule of My Shows

Throughout the years, I have received top awards at competitions for my unique and limited pieces. I attend only juried arts and crafts shows around Florida when I’m not creating.
