How to Make a Coastal Christmas Wreath
Making this upcycled wreath is about as simple as it gets! Start at one point of the wreath and glue one tail of the scarf to it. Continue wrapping and gluing the scarf to completely cover the straw wreath.
Glue on a cluster of 8-10 seashells and/or driftwood pieces to the bottom right of the wreath.
If you like, lightly spray the wreath with snow spray.
I loved how the wreath turned out. It became the centerpiece of our coastal Christmas mantel decor!

On the first wreath (Coastal Christmas Wreath, I had NO idea that was a sweater you used! I thought it was Spanish moss that you had spraypainted turquoise! I think you did well using the sweater - that moss can leave such a mess behind when you use it!

Thank you Leslie! It felt good to use what I had to make the wreath and it was a scarf I didn't wear anyways!
