Attaching the Hanger

Cut a length of the tow rope about 2 feet long. Attach a two foot length of the tow rope to the back of the wreath frame with a hot glue gun. The rope should be close to the outside edge of the frame.

Begin Wrapping the Wreath Frame

Attach one end of the tow rope to the back of the wreath frame (close to the bottom) with a hot glue gun. Allow it to cool and harden completely before proceeding. When cool, begin wrapping the rope around the frame. After every 6 passes, leave a triangular space the width of two passes to keep the rope perpendicular to the inside of the frame.

Prepare Embellishments for the Wreath

Paint inexpensive artificial mini pumpkins with white spray paint to embellish your wreath. Careful to mask off the stems. Attach them to the bottom center of the wreath using a hot glue gun.  Add vinyl adhesive letters to the pumpkins for a Halloween message.

Wrapping the Wreath

When wrapping the wreath frame be sure to wrap over the spot where the hanger is glued to further secure it.

Coastal DIY Beach Specimen Display Shadow Box

Coastal DIY Beach Specimen Display Shadow Box

SUPPLIES YOU NEED:

Beach specimen such as shells, driftwood, and seaweed. If you won’t make it to the beach this summer, you can purchase most of these things at a craft store!
Shadow box frame (I got mine at a craft store)
Card stock
Embroidery thread and needle

Glue gun and hot glue

DIRECTIONS:

First, cut your card stock so that it fits snugly in your shadow box frame. If you’re using embroidery thread like I did, flip the card stock over and add little dots or lines as a guide for where you’d like to place the thread.

Use a needle and thread to embroider your card stock. I made tiny x-shapes and uneven lines. I wanted to keep this feeling irregular and raw.

Next, arrange your specimen on your card stock however you’d like. Play around with different placements until you find one that feels just right!

Finally, glue your arrangement in place using hot glue, and insert the card stock into the shadow box. You’re all set!
