Every year my entire family (brothers, sister, parents, grandkids and all) head to Panama City Beach for 1 week of vacation relaxing on the beach. This year though we decided to try something that we haven’t done in 15 years… head to Breckenridge, Colorado for a week in the mountains. We leave mid July but it can’t come soon enough.
So I think this next project came from wanting a little piece of the beach with me at home this summer since I won’t be seeing it in person. So say hello to my Rope Nautical Wreath…
I have to admit, I totally winged this project. I would like to say that I totally thought it out and planned all of the pieces, but it was really a hodge podge of different items I had in my craft stash, plus one or two new finds.
- straw wreath form (still in plastic)
- 100ft sisal rope
- greenery pins
- seashell garland from Michael’s (on sale for $10)
- anchor hook from Hobby Lobby (on sale for $4)
Start my wrapping your rope around the wreath form. Pin in place on the back side every so often with a greenery pin.
I added the seashells the same way… just wrapped a little bit of twine about 2 times around the wreath and shells to secure in place. I tied a knot in the twine on the back side of wreath form.
And that’s it. Pretty simple wreath but I love the look! I’m thinking about adding some nautical fabric as a bow or hanger but for now this suits me just fine.
I have to admit, I’m pretty stoked about Colorado.
Ellie has never been and her favorite activity right now is hiking.
Plus getting a break from the heat will be SO NICE!
