Any DIY project I’m willing to tackle usually meets these two criteria; First, it can’t be too difficult or time consuming, and second it’s a cheaper version of something I’m coveting but am too cheap to spend the money.This DIY sea shell wreath was inspired by Pier 1’s version which retails for nearly $60. Bed, Bath and Beyond also has a sea shell wreath for about $40. My version was less than $15.
Michael’s sells sea shells by the bag and with them constantly offering 40% off any item it was a bargain at $6.99. I already had the natural twig wreath that I could reuse, and also purchased at half price at Michael’s. I believe it was about $10.
Lay out all of your seashells on the wreath, and arrange how you would like them. It’s a bit difficult to glue on the twigs, but if you turn the shells face down it’s much easier. Then slowly glue each shell to the wreath. I went heavy on the bottom and worked my way up. I had leftover burlap from another project. I simply tied the bow and glued it to the top of the wreath.
