When I think of summer, I often think of the beach with calm waves and warm sand. Today I tried to capture those feelings with this fun and beautiful DIY driftwood beach inspired wreath.
- Driftwood Wreath
- Blue Burlap
- 6 Bunches of White Double Gypso Flowers
- Wood Anchor
- Wood Glue
- Foam Brushes
- Decorative Sand
- Hot Glue Gun
- Sea Shells
Step 2. Now you’ll create a pretty burlap bow to attach to your DIY driftwood wreath. To create the bow, I wrapped it around itself and the kept adding in additional folds (see photo below). I ended up with 3 loops on each side. Add hot glue as you fold the burlap ribbon to keep it into place. Now you’ll cut about a 4-5″ length of burlap and wrap it around the center of your folds to finish off and gather the loops in a “bow” shape. Pull it secure and finish off with hot glue on the back side.
Step 3. Next you’ll prepare your flowers. To start you’ll trim them down to the desired length. Next you’ll place 3 going up and 3 going down. Gather together in the center and use hot glue to attach them to the DIY driftwood wreath. You’ll want to fan them out a bit so they provide nice dimension.
Step 4. Apply your burlap bow using hot glue over top of the flowers then glue on your “sandy” anchor once its dry. Embellish with sea shells using hot glue (I used seashells we gathered from a family vacation).
