Starfish Wreath

 

A friend was over today, I suddenly had a idea what to do with a green wreath I had. I held the wreath and the burlap in my hand and said “I have a idea for these”! Instantly she said ‘I want it”. I hadn’t even started with it…oh well.

Here is what I used….

Plus the shells and turtle. I started wrapping the rolled burlap around the wreath.

I wrapped it all around to hide the wreath. Oh, and I used my glue gun at the beginning and at the end. It was nice using my glue gun again. So fast. Anyway, after it was wrapped all around I sprayed it with this to keep the wreath unraveling…really it helps!

I then started doing the same with the net like burlap wrapping it all around.

I knew I wanted a starfish in the corner, so that is where I started. I just added the starfish, then the shells. It needed something, and I remember Arlene saying she wanted it for her beach themed bathroom. So, I had been making the turtles for another project and thought it would be perfect for her. I made it out of material. I then sprayed it with the clear sealer so it would be a little stiff.
I then added the netting I had used to wrap around the wreath. I took a piece and started in in the front of the Starfish went up and wrapped around top to back of wreath, and then down. I also added the small rope to use for hanging. I hot glued the rope on, then stapled.
I added shells and that’s it. I’m sorry I don’t have any pics to show you…she’s coming back later to pick up. Lol.
If you have any questions at all, just ask and I will respond quickly…thank you!

    1. Ohhhhhhhh…you are sooooo lucky!!!! I love the beach. Where I live I have the sand…but it’s desert sand. I made so many beach and seashell crafts. Check them out in the ‘Garden’ and ‘Crafts’. I love beach crafts also!!

      1. I did. I love them all. Need to carve out more crafting time for myself. My collections of beach finds sit lonely and wanton in pails and containers….sigh!

      2. Get them out of the containers…or put them in pretty bottles, and Mason Jars!Make a Seashell outdoor table as I did…it holds all your favorite shells and you can view them!

      3. Living right on the coast, weather changes minute by minute. It’s like a box of chocolates…..LOL

        Desert weather is the same! I lived in the Sahara for a couple of years. I get it.
