Starfish Wreath

 

A friend was over today, I suddenly had a idea what to do with a foam green wreath from the Dollar Store that I had. I held the wreath and the burlap in my hand and said to her “I have a idea for these”! Instantly she said ‘I want it”., and grabbed the wreath and burlap out of my hand. I started laughing so hard…it was so funny.

Anyway, this is a relatively easy craft to do. Most of your supplies can be picked up at a dollar store.

 

Except the shells and turtle I made, these are the supplies you will need:

I started by wrapping roll of burlap up 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!
