Shell Wreaths Handmade from Beach Finds

Use your shells as well as other beach finds to make a one of a kind wreath! Here are a few beautiful inspirational shell wreaths that are sure to inspire!

driftwood and shell wreath
I'm in love with this gorgeous wreath! It hangs on Caron's front door and was crafted by two friends of hers with driftwood, shells, and other bits and pieces found during their adventurous beach walks along the Northwest shores. For more details visit Caron's blog Everything Coastal.

And another wonderful shell wreath that graces a front door, featured here.

Mussel shell wreath
A Mussel Shell Wreath made from shells collected on the beach of Chebague Island, ME. Dena of Sincerely Yours used a wire wreath from a craft store and then hot glued all the mussel on it.

Beach Wreath
This Beach Wreath is from Barbara Jacksier's book Waterside Cottage. The shells are tucked into a vine wreath.

shell wreath with book pages
Dore's shell wreath is named Love Letters from the Sea and includes rolled book pages from Seven Centuries of Love. She attached all the shells to twigs on a grapevine wreath and tucked the rolled pages underneath the shells. So romantic!

And lastly, a lovely example of a shell wreath that is entirely covered with shells, hot glued to a dense styrofoam ring, made by Becky of Sweet Cottage Dreams. For more inspiration, browse all DIY Wreaths!

Maya -
What a surprise to open up your blog this morning and see my old front door! Thanks for featuring my wreath - love these, and love how my friends put them together from long walks on the beach, filling bags full of treasures and simply enjoying the girlfriend time.

Hi Maya, these are just fantastic. I especially love the wreath with the driftwood. And to think this is all from the sea. I love re-using nature! If you have a moment, check my wreaths out on my post in March 2009 - Other pieces I've made... Px

Sorry, me again... I also love the significance of the circle. "The circle is used as a symbol to signify love, protection, friendship, re-birth, and even life itself". Px

I love Dore's Love letters from the sea. I just purchased a sign from her that I am so looking forward to getting...

I'm still collecting for my driftwood and shell wreath maybe I should go buy some stuff and get around to making it.

Maya,
Really did not expect all the attention you gave to the details of this beach wreath. I am sooooo!! honored that you would even consider my wreath included in your group, But am very happy you did. It is darker in person and the tag hanging from it is a dictionary meaning hanging from it with a hand colored paper bird I made.

Really dear Maya, I hope I can return the favor to you soon.

These are all so beautiful! I'm liking this look more and more. Especially with the Texas heat beating us down. I'm bringing in more decorative blues. Yesterday I bought a bunch of seashells. You've inspired me to get out my glue gun!
