Nautical Christmas Wreath


I decided to make my first Christmas Wreath this year and was inspired by late night shadows on the wall.
One night while lying in bed I noticed that the shadow of one of the ship helms we had hung up resembled a snowflake. Keep in mind that this was after hours of staring at Christmas crafts online, and I had even told the hubs that the corner of his pillow resembled a tree, lol.
I simply added some

    I definitely am a beachy person and love anything that has to do with the beach/ocean theme. Your ship wheel is elegant with the little touches of rope and snowflakes. Thanks for sharing this idea.
