Summer Seashell Wreath


My big sister Jenna just bought her first home (YAY)! She is a total beach girl so I wanted to make her something with that theme for her place. I thought a front door wreath would make a great accessory, plus who doesn't love wreaths these days.


This project did take some time but it was well worth it. I hope she likes it!


Supplies:
Styrofoam Wreath
Net
Sand
Shells
Mod Podge
Hot Glue Gun
Sponge Brush
*All of the supplies can be found at Hobby Lobby or Michael's


Step 1: Apply mod podge on a section of the wreath. Take sand and sprinkle over the glue. Take your finger across the sand to even it out. Continue this all around the wreath. Pick up the wreath and shake off the excess sand. Now repeat the process on the outer edge and the inner circle. (Just a word of caution, either do this outside or on a covered surface because it gets messy!) Wait a few hours for the glue to completely dry before moving on to the next step.


Step 2: Take the net and cut out a piece about 4-5 inches wide and about 3 feet in length. Next take the net and attach it to the wreath by tying a bow at the top.

Oliver was assisting me as usual. 

Step 3: Begin placing your shells around the wreath until your satisfied with the position.



Step 4: Hot glue the shells and starfish to the wreath. Now just wait for the glue to dry and your done!


Happy Crafting!
