This is another project that fell on my lap –> A guy I work with just moved and the other week he sent me a picture of a seashell wreath they found in their attic and asked if I wanted it for one of my projects. Of course I wanted it…. So he brought it in and I gave it a new look with a little spray paint.
Spray Painted Seashell Wreath
What you’ll need:
- Seashell wreath
- Spray paint
Spray paint can make over just about anything, and I was convinced it would give this colorful and slightly cheesy looking seashell wreath a more subdued and classy beach look. Grab your handy can of spray paint, and go to town.
I used a flat white instead of a shiny finish because I wanted it to look like the shells had been bleached. After a few coats of spray on all sides of the wreath, I let it dry. The paint alone made a HUGE difference.
Next, I made a bow for the wreath. I still get nervous when I have to make a bow, but I grabbed some navy blue burlap ribbon and started making one, then decided to add some rope to the bow as a fun accent too. Once I finished the bow, I attached it with wire, and it was done!
Not a bad transformation with just some spray paint and a bow!
