Simple Nautical Wreath + Craft Room Inspiration Week announcement

Happy Thursday! We are getting ready to go to the beach for a much deserved vacation. ahhh! So excited! We have a family tradition of going to the Outer Banks for a week each year. We love it there! So to prepare for our beach week, I hung my nautical wreath {from my nautical mantel} on my front door. And let’s just say, I am more than ready for some sand between my toes!

Nautical Wreath

The navy blue and white stripe ribbon is so perfect for this wreath! The cute bunting was original from the 4th of July but it totally doubles well as a nautical bunting. This wreath was really simple and easy to make. I hot glued two inch strips of red and white fabric around a STYROFOAM wreath form. Then hot glued some hemp twine around the wreath where the two colors meet to look like a life preserver.  I then attached the bunting to the twine.

This nautical wreath just puts me in a good mood! Love me some waves, sunshines, and sand. awww.

    What a sweet wreath, and I love the clean lines. Thank you for designing with STYROFOAM Brand Foam. Enjoy every minute of your week at the beach, so you’ll come home refreshed and relaxed.

    I saw this and thought it was great! I’ve emleaid everyone I give Christmas gifts to and asked them for their Favorite holiday (didn’t tell them why).. I’ll make a wreath for their holiday for their Christmas present. What a great custom idea for less than $5 probably (Joann’s has this wire 12 for .79 right now)! You could do this wreath for even small holidays like St. Patty’s Day or beautiful for Valentines day!
