I don’t know why, but I have never seen so many octopus and kraken room decor items until I got a Tumblr blog. I think they’re fun and different, although they wouldn’t work with my decor. I think I would figure out a way to make one of those empty Kraken rum bottles work, though. They’re just too cool not to figure out something to do with them.

Octopus wall tentacle!!  You should totally click here to look at the different colors & shapes.  I found this from trying out Etsy Taste Test, which you should also try (no account needed).I’m finding lots of good stuff for my world of experiences blogging!

Not only is the owl adorable, but the octopus would go well with the kraken wall sconce I suggested making out of a liquor bottle here:

Another underwater room thing. This would go with the kraken wall sconce I blogged about before here. This would take some work, but you could make your own. You would need a suitable light fixture to modify.
Arms would be some wire and flexible foam, like closed cell foam to pad out the wire arms. Cover with newspaper or junk mail papier mache and texture them. Add red suction cups for the arms. Use different sized cups and trim some to get other sizes. Use silicon sandable, paintable caulk around the edges of the cups to bury them into the arm like they were growing out of it. Paint it.
Of course, you couldn’t use a hot light bulb in the fixture, but that’s all right, they’re not energy efficient anyway.
