It is Metamorphis Monday at Susan's, so I thought I would show what I created over the weekend. I know many of you have seen Cindy's beautiful shell wreaths. I thought I would give it a try. Let me tell you right now, Cindy must be an expert, because these are more time consuming than you think. And watch out fingies....I am still babying a blister!
I found white wreaths at the Dollar Tree. They are about 10 inches. It took, and I am guessing here, about 2 bags of shells. Don't get too many big shells. They don't fit the curve of the wreath correctly. Smaller, about the size of a quarter to half dollar work better, in my opinion.
I started on the inside and worked my way around to the outside, filling in as needed.
I am so pleased with how it turned out. I need to find some ribbon to hang it...but until then I added it to my beachy display on my LR coffee table.
and I know, but seriously, I can't help putting this picture in.
This little guy, well, he has just stolen my heart.
