This fun beach themed wreath will bring a splash of color and sunshine to your front door! Since it’s made with Styrofoam it’s very lightweight. I think it would look great indoors or outdoors. Keep reading to learn how simple it is to make your own beachy DIY summer wreath.
- 12 inch Styrofoam Wreath Form
- Styrofoam Cones (5)
- 5/8 inch Dowel Rod
- 2 inch Styrofoam Ball
- Craft Sand
- Mod Podge
- Craft Paint (various summer colors)
- Hot Glue Gun
Step one. Paint the top 3/4 of the wreath with sky blue paint. Paint the bottom 1/4 of the wreath yellow.
Step two. Apply a generous layer of Mod Podge to the yellow section of the wreath form. Sprinkle and press sand into the Mod Podge. Gently tap off the excess. The yellow sand will create the beach part of your wreath.
Step three. Paint each cone a different color. I used bright colors for mine. I chose 5 colors and placed the bottles next to each other to make sure they went well together. To minimize the mess, I painted the base of the cone first. Then I carefully inserted a toothpick in the cone and painted the top. When the whole cone was painted I set the pick in a styrofoam disk so the paint could dry.
