My family finally got home from our Florida vacation late Saturday night and I already miss our lazy days at the beach. To remember our times in Panama City, I thought I would create something out of the seashells my daughter collected.
So first up is a mini seashell wreath to hang on my fireplace just below my mantel! I actually have to give a shout out to my friend Holli. She found a picture of a cool seashell wreath in a magazine, snapped a photo with her cell phone and emailed it to me. LOVE IT! Some people just know me so well :)
For the base of the wreath, I found a miniature grapevine version at the Dollar Store. I chose the 8 inch wreath since I usually use the same size with my Fall and Christmas decorations. It fits perfectly and adds some interest to the gray brick on the fireplace. I also picked up some polka dot gold and white ribbon from the Dollar Store.
I wrapped the ribbon around the wreath as a base for my seashells. I figured it would be easier to glue the shells to a smooth surface, plus I’d rather have the ribbon show when the seashells don’t cover all of the surface area.
