I feel like a wreath can be the first impression of an apartment — especially during Christmas time, which is why I felt the need to re-do my wreath from last year and update it for this year.

Trust me, I needed to update the wreath..  Last year’s wreath was basically some shells, hemp and hot glue:


I started by getting all of the hemp outta there, and the other ornaments on the wreath.  I left the 2 starfish (wish were attached via wire) and some shells.

I wrapped some ribbon (from Michael’s, duh) around the wreath and added a few other shells with wire.


Lastly, I start painting a lil sign to go in the middle of the wreath.  This summer I saw a sign that fit my style — “Who needs snowflakes when you have seashells” and knew it had to be apart of my Christmas decorations.

I found a small canvas at Michael’s, got some paint (and a glass of wine for creative courage) and painted the sign.  After hot glueing some twine on the back, it was ready to go on the wreath and ready to hang on the front door.


With the unseasonably warm weather, the shells seem even more appropriate than ever!
