Summer Crafts: Simple Beach Theme Wreath

Summer Crafts: Simple Beach Theme Wreath

Since summer is almost here, I am beginning to think about summer crafts, and recently found myself trying to recreate a simple beach theme wreath. I confess, sometimes I consider myself a copycat crafter. I see something in a catalog or craft fair and think, “hey I can do that”. Summer Crafts: Simple Beach Theme Wreath

This is exactly where the inspiration for this fun summer crafts idea for a beach theme wreath came from! As I was browsing LL Bean’s catalog I saw a whimsical beach themed wreath and I found my way to the craft store. I thought I would show you how to make a beach theme wreath for a fraction of the price of this catalog version. I love LLBean, don’t get me wrong, but I thought this was a little pricey considering the items you can find at the craft store.

No worries, this isn’t a complicated or labor intensive craft project. In fact, you only need 3-4 things and you are up and going on this super easy DIY summer crafts project. This makes a great gift too for a  beach or river house.

Summer Crafts like our Simple Beach Theme Wreath are a great way to make an affordable version of a favorite store home decor item! This easy summer crafts idea is perfect for any budget!

Supplies Needed:

  1. Grapevine wreath your choice I found the 18-inch one worked best for us
  2. Spray paint- you can choose white or blue or any color that fits your decor
  3. Hot Glue gun 
  4. Shells, starfish or sand dollars, whatever you have available
This summer crafts project is not too complicated yet right? It’s actually a super easy beach theme idea that anyone can throw together at the last minute. I can even imagine this coming together to use for a beach wedding!
 
I decided to first spray my beach themed wreath lightly with the white spray paint for that faded beach look. I think a light blue, turquoise, or even peach spray paint would all look great for that summer beach theme you are looking for in this wreath. You can go with any color, but I typically think about the softer beach colors, or bright pops of blue and green from the water when I think of the beach.
 
Once it is dry, just attach your shells or other beach items. Sand dollars, shells, driftwood pieces, or even sea glass can all be glued onto your easy summer crafts beach wreath! I find that odd numbers of items look best grouped on a wreath like this. We used 3 simple shells, but you could even easily glue them on top of each other to create a small cluster of shells in one corner. The possibilities with this are truly endless!

  1. I know could not be simplier and I guess you could hot glue florist wire and attach to the wreath that way and then take it off for different seasons.

  2. Very nice, I’ve always wanted to make my own wreath! Love the simplicity, yet, its beautiful!

  3. no craft skill needed Heidi, you can do this no problem.

  6. I love, love, love this!!! I live in a beach town and have never thought about making a beach theme wreath….it’s now my summer project!! Thanks!!

  7. I like yours better, definitely! I like the blue too. It’s very faint but sets off the white shells well.
