'H' Seashell Letter

3 Materials
I'm getting into the summer spirit, and I've started decorating my mantle. I built the mantle a couple of years ago, and since I keep it decorated according to seasons or holidays.....So...here's my H
I started with one of those cardboard letters, lots of depth. I fiddled around with different coverings, but at the end I went with the burlap. I think it's makes the shells more prominent.
Above is what I was contemplating. I wrapped it with the burlap. I glued up to the top back and hot glued it down. (If your putting this outside, use a glue specifically for that)
I then played around with the net wire ribbon. I love that ribbon. I glued it at the top back, and played with it a little as I went down to opposite corner and glued it down.
I have some sea glass I have been wanting to use......so I played around with it. I knew I wanted a starfish....or 3. So I put the biggest at top left. I put more of the glass in the bottom two sides. I just spray painted some berries I had white....and added that. This will be nice on my summer theme! Don't we love summer! Oh and by the way, I sprayed the whole thing with Rust oleum Clear Coat.
It picked up the natural colors of the glass, and shells. Thank you for looking!
