Pumpkins and Sea shells? Yes! If you’re going for coastal autumn decor, they can go well together! I decided that since I was going coastal with my fall decor, it needed to begin at my front door. This is an easy DIY wreath that can be made in under 30 minutes.
I thought I had my fall wreath completed when I made a wreath in August. But, it wasn’t really working with my other fall decor this year and Gloria loved it. So, I gave that one to her and went to work making a new one that combines my coastal decor with fall decor.
I started with another grapevine wreath and gathered the items I would need for the new look.
Coastal vase filler
I wove the rope into the grapevine all the way around and hot glued it in place at the top of the wreath.
I used an orange burlap bow that I made last year for my mantel. Then, I tied a piece of teal burlap ribbon around it into a bow on top. I tied the bows onto the wreath with twine.
The next step was placement of the shells and other filler items. I placed them in various positions until I was satisfied with the balance and then hot glued them onto the wreath.
Hanging the wreath and stepping back to have a good look at it gave me a better look at the empty spots and I could easily see where I need to add in more filler. I continued to hot glue more pieces until it was full enough.
I like the combination of orange and teal to blend coastal with autumn. I bought the pumpkin wreath hanger at Kirkland’s and hanging against my black front door makes it all really stand out.
