DIY Seashell Wreath

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:

  • Wreath
  • Glue (I used hot glue but any craft glue would work)
  • White spray paint (optional)
  • Seashells
  • 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.

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!
