In an upcoming post, I’ll be sharing my beach-themed bathroom, but today I’m going to share my DIY Seashell Wreath made from supplies found at the Dollar Tree.
For this craft, you will need:
- Glue (I used hot glue but any craft glue would work)
- White spray paint (optional)
- Fishing net (optional)
I started with a small, $1 wreath. I sprayed two light coats of Rust-oleum Ultra Cover Paint+Primer in white semi-gloss that I already had on hand for another project. I wanted a bleached wood look, so I didn’t go too heavy with the paint. Once that was dry, I draped fishing net on the wreath. I didn’t glue it, but you can if yours won’t stay draped on it.
After I had the fishing net positioned how I wanted it, I started gluing on the seashells with hot glue. They are a combination of purchased shells and ones I found on the beach.
That’s really all there was to it. I had to touch up some areas where the hot glue took the paint off because I apparently can’t not make a mess with hot glue. I still think it turned out cute for a cheap project, will totally fit the theme in my bathroom, and hubby thought I bought it, so I’ll take that as a good sign!
Wreath – $1
Seashells – $1
Fishing net – $1
Spray paint – About $0.25 worth of a $3.87 can of spray paint I already had
Hot glue – Not counting as I’ve had the gun for years and glue sticks I keep on hand
My total cost: $3.25
