Beautiful seashell wreath to add a beachy flare! Quick,easy and cheap!
We live just miles from the beach and one of our favorite ( my 3 year old &I) is to go she'll hunting. As you can imagine we've collected quite a few shells, we have jars of shells everywhere. We had bought a house and I knew I wanted a beach vibe but I didn't want full on beachy, if that makes sense. Our house being built in the 90s has that big beautiful builders (sarcasm😂) mirror above the fireplace. It's huge and it's just not feasible for us to remove it right now. I told my husband I was going to make a wreath to go on it and I do believe he thought I may be a little crazy. So off to the good ole Dollar Tree I went in search of what to use. I'd bought wreath forms and such there before so I knew they had some of the important parts. Once I decided to use the shells I noticed that all I had were rather large ones so I bought a wreath form, moss and a small bag of shells.

Glue moss over entire front side of wreath, I used hot glue. I highly advise using something to press the moss with (old spoon) as I burnt my fingers several times.
glue shells in pattern of your choice over moss. I placed the largest ones first and then went in and added a few small ones as well.
To hang it stick bread tie into back of wreath and glue to hold It in place

I used a clear command hood that I had left over from Christmas and hung it over my fireplace mirror.
