Sea Shell Wreath

seashellwreath This is another simple DIY project. I have a large collection of shells from when I lived at the beach that I thought I would use to make  sea shell wreaths. I bought a couple of these wreaths at the dollar tree and simply hot glued shells to it. I made one for my mom and one for a friend. They both live at the beach so sea shell wreaths will be appropriate for their homes.

IMG_5603 This is how the first one came out. I only put the shells on the face of the wreath, not on the inside or outside.

IMG_5657 This is the second wreath I made. I put a few more shells around the outside and inside of the wreath. I like the way this one came out.

IMG_5649 You can’t mess these up. First, I glued shells all over the wreath. Then I went back and filled in the open spaces with smaller shells and sea glass.

shell1 There you go- a simple sea shell wreath you can make for yourself or a friend. It’s very easy!
