I've been away on vacation for the past week. It was sandy, hot, breezy, wet- and super-duper fun. I did some beachcombing while I was there. I kept seeing these super cute drift wood sticks all over the place and I remembered seeing a drift wood wreath in a recent Pottery Barn magazine- so I started gathering sticks. I think my relatives thought the sun was getting to me ;)
I started weaving them together and after about two days of gathering and weaving I had myself a cute little wreath. Perfect for my daughters bathroom- that I'm slowing turning into a beach themed bathroom (I know! So original- right!?)
When I got home I hot glued a bunch of shells and some rocks that we found on the beach into the wreath. And then I glued a hand carved (no, not by me!) wooden turtle - that I bought at the beach gift store for $3 - onto the bottom corner. Viola! A three dollar drift wood wreath. If you want one of your own you can buy one on Pottery Barn Teen web site for about $50 (in the shape of a peace sign and minus the shells).
