How to Get the Look:

  • This wreath features clamshells, however you can use shells of all kinds. Scour the beach for a raw variety or group like shells for a stunning and cohesive arrangement.
  • Arrange shells before gluing to base. This can feel like piecing a puzzle together, but you want to ensure the shells fit together tightly into a circle.er
  • Carefully glue shells to a wreath base, making sure to follow the shape you pieced together.
