Lesson 65-My Summer Wreath

I have growing wreath collection. One for Fall/Thanksgiving. One for Christmas. One for Halloween (which died a horrible death, but that's another story for another day). One for Easter. And one for Memorial Day/Independence Day. I'm close to having the year covered. But what to do with those months post-Independence Day and pre-Fall. From that question this summer-time wreath was born.

Starting with a straw wreath, I wrapped twine all the around. Round and round and round I went. I already had two rolls of twine at home from previous projects and I figured that would be enough. Imagine my frustration when both rolls ran out and was left with this much--twineless.

So off to Wal-Mart I went for a third roll. Once I finished covering the wreath I added my seashells. They're from a bag at Hobby Lobby. I live in the desert, please don't judge me. Again with the handy dandy glue gun I attached them to the twine wreath.

wreath- $3.50
twine- already had two; $1.65 for third roll
bag of sea shells- $4.99

TOTAL: $10.14 (give or take some pennies)

And here it is hanging on our front door. I like it!!! How about you?
