>{Coastal Crafts} Oyster Shell Heart Wreath


Oyster shells and rope found on the beach create an easy to make heart wreath…coastal style!

Since the crafting bug bit recently, we decided to use some of our shells to create a heart for Valentine's Day. We actually like hearts all year long so it will probably hang outside our front entry for several months.

The oyster shells were found last summer on our beach, as you may remember (A Treasure of Seashells article).  The rope has been hanging around for a few years so it was good and clean from all the rain showers.

    >This is so beautiful and simple. Most people make the mistake of adding too much "sea" elements to coastal wreaths but you are letting the seashells shine in their own beauty. Lovely.AngieLinen + Verbena
