Seashell door wreath

This sea shell door wreath is an easy DIY at home or when it's rainy and your on a beach vacation. You'll need hot glue, a glue gun, a grape vine wreath and sea shells. The sea shells i used were easy to find while walking at the beach. But, I think the starfish and sand dollars really add that wow factor. Starfish and sand dollars aren't as easy to find along the sea side. So while we were on vacation at the beach, 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! They did a great job with the wrapping. Nothing got broken, and I've had the box stored away for over a year.

HOW-TO:
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!
