Seashell door wreath

How to make a sea shell wreath
Sea shell door wreaths are an easy DIY at home or when it's rainy and your on a beach vacation. You'll need glue gun, glue sticks, a grape vine wreath and sea shells. I found my seashells on the beach. Starfish and sand dollars aren't as easy to find, so I bought some at a specialty shell shop called  Sea Shell City. They had a spectacular shell selection, and a really neat maritime museum upstairs. The sales staff carefully wrapped all my items in tissue paper and boxed them to prevent breakage! Nothing got broken, and I've had the box stored away for over a year.

Before I added glue, I arranged my items on the wreath to get an idea of spacing and symmetry.  I chose a alternating pattern and repeated it around, allowing space between items. Next, I added a little hot glue to the back of each shell, and then pressed them carefully onto my wreath.

It was super easy! Love that beach house feel on my front door all Summer!  
I'm linking my project to these lovely parties!
