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!
- 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
- 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
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 http://www.thehappierhomemaker.com does a great job of showing this:
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…
