DIY Coastal Sea Star Wreath

We love having a wreath on our door all year round, changing it up with the seasons.  Here’s a coastal wreath that will get you feeling relaxed and like you’re coming home to the beach!

Supplies:

  • 1 vine wreath
  • burlap ribbon
  • floral wire
  • artificial flowers of your liking
  • faux sea stars (so as to not harm their populations!)
  • twine, optional
  • hot glue gun and sticks
  • scissors
  • letter for your last name initial (we white washed a wooden one for a beachy feel. If you’re wanting to do this, you’ll need:)
    • wooden letter
    • white wash acrylic paint
    • paintbrush

Step 1: If you like your letter as-is, skip this step! If you are white washing your wooden letter, paint its surface with white wash acrylic paint (or watered down white acrylic paint) and a paintbrush.  If needed, wet your paint brush as you go to thin the paint to your liking.  Let dry for a few minutes.

Step 2: Make a burlap bow by laying the burlap in a bow form and then tying floral wire around the center.  Take a piece of burlap and attach with hot glue to the center of bow to cover the floral wire.  This photo from the www.thehappierhomemaker.com does a great job of showing this: bow

Step 3: Lay out your arrangement of wooden letter, burlap bow, artificial starfish, and artificial flowers on your wreath, and adjust to your liking

Step 4: Attach all of the above to your wreath using twine or hot glue.

Made with the same flowers as our Color Duo Mason Jars, it makes for a set that really gives our sunroom a beachy feel.  Ahhhh now if we just brought some sand in to dig our feet into…
