Christmas is not the only time to place a wreath on your door. Wreaths can be made to coordinate with any of the four seasons. Kids can even get in on the action by making a seashell wreath.
You will need the following items to make your seashell wreath:
- Large paper plate
- Hole punch
- Glue gun
Follow these directions to make your seashell wreath:
Cut the center out of your paper plate, leaving the edges to form a wreath.
Punch a hole out of the top center of your paper plate wreath. Thread a piece of yarn through the hole. Create a circle out of the yarn and tie a knot at the end so that you can hang your wreath later on.
Cover the front of your wreath with a generous amount of glue. Sprinkle sand over the glue. Let the wreath dry.
Tap the wreath gently over a trash can to get rid of any excess glue. Do this only after the sand has dried.
Collect a variety of seashells from the beach. If you don't live near the seashore, try a craft store. Of course, if you want to stick with just one kind, you can. This is your wreath and you can decorate it any way you like.
Use a hot glue gun to attach your seashells to the sandy paper plate.
Wait for the hot glue to dry before hanging your seashell paper plate wreath.
