Hey everyone! I’m back again today with another fun knockoff project! I was inspired to make this DIY seashell wreath after seeing this Faux Shell Wreath during one of my many evenings of drooling over all of the gorgeous items on Pottery Barn’s website.
I loved the beachy feel of this wreath. Unfortunately, being in Arizona, we don’t exactly live near a beach. My brother-in-law; however, is in the Marine Corps and stationed at Camp Pendeldon in Oceanside. He and his family just recently moved into a new house off base and I thought this would be the perfect housewarming gift! It worked out perfectly that we got to spend some time with them during our Disneyland vacation this past weekend.
Pottery Barn’s version of this wreath is $89. My version was just under twelve dollars! I purchased all of my materials at Michaels and I happened to have a 40% off coupon and then a 25% off entire purchase coupon when I bought everything.
I used an 18″ grapevine wreath, a package of seashells, and a package of starfish to make the wreath.
I enlisted the help of my handy dandy glue gun to attach all of the seashells and starfish to the wreath. Some pieces were a little tricky to find a good contact point with the wreath, but everything ended up attaching really well and it survived the trip all of the way from AZ to CA without incident!
That was it! The wreath was so easy to make and my sister-in-law loved it! It looked great hanging on their front door and several times during out visit I wished I could have made one for our own front door. My husband had to remind me a few times that we live nowhere near a beach, so it wouldn’ t make much sense for us to have a beachy wreath in the middle of the desert. He’s my voice of reason a lot of the time. I hope you found this tutorial easy to follow, and if you make one for yourself I’d love to see it!
