Summertime Wreath

Summertime, and the wreath makin' is easy...
I've been wanting to make a wreath for summer for the past 5 years and I finally got around to doing it.
Here's what I came up with!

I found all my supplies at Michael's.
All you basically need is a straw wreath, a bag of spanish moss, sea shells and thick wire ribbon. I also added a few felt stickers for an extra touch of personality!

I began by unwrapping the wreath from it's plastic. Don't take off the twine holding it together. This is a messy process, but it's all worth it.

Then I started cutting off small pieces of moss and gluing them around the wreath.

I didn't glue the moss to the back, only on the top. It should look something like this.

Then I took the ribbon and started wrapping it around the moss covered wreath. It kind holds it all together better.

Then I folded the two loose ends and glued them down.

Next, I glued down different seashells on the parts where the moss is showing.

I then arranged the felt pieces and glued them down onto the ribbon.

Lastly, loop through some more ribbon to hang it from and tie a cute bow on top.

I think it turned out pretty well. Let me know if you have any questions. Like I said, it was pretty easy.

What a great and beautiful summer idea! I'm trying to transform our house with a more beachy theme since we'll probably never actually get to a house on the beach this summer with the kiddos, so this is great inspiration! Thanks for sharing your tutorial :-)

I love this coastal beachy look! Great for summer for most of us, but I could see it being used year round near the beach. Thanks for sharing how to make it.
