1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 88 ENTRIES / Summer Seaside Wreath for Dollar Store Challenge on: July 07, 2013 02:18:07 PM


Hi, this is my entry for the dollar store challenge. I really admire seaside art and was inspired by Carmela's Coastal Crafts. Luckily I could find some shells and other "beachy" looking items  to make it with at the dollar store. My daughter and I used these supplies and took apart the leis, beads and decoration to re-purpose them. I also used moss and shells for a natural look.





Supplies

First I tied on the netting, ribbon and "tall grass" to create the image of seaweed and waves of the ocean. I also tied the white and blue flowers at the top to give the impression of white fluffy clouds. I used the wire with stars to give the look of starfish and also to wire the lighthouse to the wreath. Then I used tacky glue for the mossy part and hot glue for the shells and beads. Below you see the finished product..
