Next, I did a test run with the shells before gluing to see if I had enough to cover the wreath. Phew! It was really, really close!
Then I just glued, glued, glued until the entire form was covered! I chose to create a symmetrical pattern with my shells but you could go all willy nilly with this if you’d like. (My SOCD (symmetrical obsessive compulsive disorder) keeps me from going all willy nilly.)
I love the subtle color variations in the shells. The periwinkles, blues, purples, and gray make it so beautiful and interesting to look at.
Right now this wreath is hanging in the dining room, but it will move to my front door once it’s a bit closer to summer.
Oh warm weather, please come soon! I’m so ready! Have you made anything fun with shells before? Let me know. I have a ton more to craft with!
