It’s been almost 2 years since I made my first oyster shell wreath, and I decided to make a mini version for Christmas!  Really, I saw the cute mini boxwood wreaths with striped ribbon on Pinterest and wanted to do a coastal version of my own – surprising huh?

Mini Oyster Shell Wreath

What you’ll need:

  • Oyster shells!
  • 6″ floral & craft ring
  • Goop liquid cement
  • Clear acrylic gloss spray
  • Ribbon

I used smaller & flatter oyster shells, and found that it took about 7-8 for a mini wreath.  Everything else can be found at your local craft shop!shell-wreath-01

First, arrange the shells on your craft

Then use the liquid cement to attach them to the craft ring.  I did this in 2 iterations: First to attach them, then the next day I went around and added some more Goop where I thought it might be

I wasn’t sure if I wanted my shells to be facing up or down, so I ended up making 2 different versions.  This is what they looked like when they were attached to the craft, spray the tops of the shells with the clear sealer to seal the shells in and add some shine.  You could probably do this before you attach the shells

Finally use the  ribbon and hang your new mini oyster shell wreaths!


I might end up hanging mine on the mirror by the entry when I pull the rest of our Christmas stuff out.   When is it acceptable to do that? Because we all know I’m waiting…
