Seashell Craft Wreath Ideas 
Winter White Seashell Wreath 
What You Will Need 
  • White spray paint
  • White or cream sea shells
  • Wire-edged ribbon with a white pattern
  • Hot glue gun
  • White or opalescent glitter
  • White berry sprigs
  • Vine wreath frame
  • Scissors 
How To Make 
  • Start with spraying white spray paint over the vine wreath frame. Ensure that you paint every angle of the vine frame to give it a finished look. If you are using a frame made of light colored vines then it can be good idea to leave its natural color as such for a more appealing look.
  • While the paint is still wet, dust the frame lightly with glitter. The glitter will give your wreath a gleaming winter snow look.
  • Make sure the paint has dried properly before going ahead with other steps.
  • Now, it’s time to glue the shells around the wreath frame. Leave top, right, and left of the frame clear, and use only the rest two-third of the frame. This will give the idea of seashell basket. To ensure that shells are fixed to the wreath, use plenty of craft glue.
  • Next, overlap the shells with more shells in such a way that the wreath underneath them is not visible.
  • Now, add white berry sprigs at the end of the areas covered with shells. This will give a touch of wintery look to your wreath.
  • Now, tie a bow at the top of the wreath. Use wire edged ribbon to help the bow hold its shape. Make sure that you cut the ends of the ribbon once the bow is complete.
  • Your winter white seashell wreath is ready!

  • Styrofoam wreath of desired size
  • Plaster of Paris castings
  • Acrylic paint ( tan and white color)
  • Collected seashells
  • Hot glue gun
  • Rope
  • Paint brushes 
How To Make 
  • Start by wrapping the entire wreath by netting until the whole wreath is covered. Fasten the beginning by using hot glue, if it doesn’t hold.
  • When the last wrap is around, let the netting come from behind the top and hang it in front of wreath at an approximate length of about 12 inches.
  • Knot the ends together and cut the rest.
  • Now, paint the plaster of paris pieces into tan color and let them dry.
  • To give them a worn look, dry brush the white paint on to the pieces.

  • Next, wrap the rope once around the right side of the wreath and once more bring it over the netting in front. Let the other end hang.
  • Now glue seashells and pieces of plaster of paris on your wreath and rope, making an attractive pattern. Use glue and hot glue gun for this.
