Seashell Wreath for Summer

It was time to change my wreath from the forsythias of spring to the seashells of summer.

To create my summer wreath, I used a wreath that I have reused quite a bit, some scrap burlap, a glue gun and gorgeous seashells found on my local beach.Here she is.Needing a bit of color, I attached three buoy ornaments found at The Christmas Tree Shop last season for real cheap.I feel it is missing something but I like it.

"Why do we love the sea?
It's because it has some potent power
to make us think things we like to think."
