This maritime bower channels the sound of the surf. The infrastructure is a metal chain from a hardware store, hung above the door (we anchored it to an overhead lamp) and nailed to each side of the arch. Starting at the top, we worked our way down each side, loading the chain with small driftwood twigs, sturdy lifelike foliage, Spanish moss, and seashells. (The last were attached to pipe cleaners with silicone glue, then twisted into the garland.) Scatter some sand on the steps, et voilà! Shells, from Loose Ends, looseends.com.
