As we discussed in yesterday’s beach tablescape post and in lieu of our August beach trip, I transitioned our spring and summer wreath into a beach theme that can carry us into fall.
It occurred to me that I just about covered the entire year with three easily changeable wreath looks.
Not everyone wants a wreath with red that continues through winter…or a cross on their wreath after Easter…or a fall wreath in November with shells and sand. But if you’re in a minimalist mode, these three could get you through.
If you like more defined themes, add different looks more often.
Three basic elements remained on the wreath for all three wreaths. The white coral on the left side, the twisties to the bottom right, and the boing-y things to the right made it through all three themes.
That simplifies things, doesn’t it?
For the beach theme, add a few shells and starfish…and knot a nautical look in some rope.
How do you get sand to stay on a wreath? In a mini hanging votive, of course, tied to a branch.
Add shells, and give it a bow.
Rather than topping it off with a bow, a bag made of net with twine and bark-covered ornaments will suffice.
Hmm…I wonder what I’ll come up with for the bird houses this fall?
Wouldn’t dried flowers be nice?
What plans are you making for the next wreath on your front door? Will it also be your wreath for fall?
