DIY Summer Wreath


What says "Welcome to my Home" better than a fun wreath!? Since it's practically Summer I decided to create a beach themed wreath for my front door...even though I live no where near the beach. A girl can dream, right!?

I bought my driftwood wreath at Hobby Lobby. Then I found some greenery, moss, seashells, fishing net and a wooden cut-out anchor at Michael's. The starfish are from Marshall's, and came in a pack of 12. This was a great find because it can be expensive to purchase them individually.

First I hot glued the fishing net to the wreath. I just glued it in a few spots to secure.

Then I inserted a few of the greenery pieces and seashells. Again making sure to use only enough glue to secure.

I used some left-over fabric that I had to cover the wooden anchor. I then sealed the fabric with Outdoor Mod Podge Exterior.When it was dry I hot glued it to a seashell on the wreath so it stuck out a little.

On the opposite side of the wreath I added some bright green moss.

Then I glued the starfish and a few seashells where I thought it needed some color.

Super easy, and super beachy don't you think? I bet if you didn't know better you would think I lived on a beach :)
