Burlap wreath with seashells

Does this wreath look a bit familiar?



First I made it just plain so I could dress it up later... 


Then I decorated it with red & aqua ribbons and a mini pennant banner that said "Welcome" for Jake's Red Scooter Party.  Click here for the tutorial {plain and dressed up}.


And then that little burlap banner got a whole lotta attention because it was on Hostess with the Mostess, Kara's Party Ideas, Whipperberry, Twiddler House, and more!


And when I saw it pinned on Pinterest under 4th of July ideas, my wheels starting spinning with ideas of how I could re-style my little burlap beauty {that cost about $5 and just 45 minutes to make} and use it over and over again!


So, here she is again  {yes, I now refer to her as though she were a real, breathing person}. This time she is all dressed up for summer!  




I just pulled out the red ribbons, added seashells {from Michael's} and switched out the word on the banner.  




It was so quick and easy, and I'm loving her so much.  She's hanging in our Sun Room that is going to be a coastal, beach themed Sun Room {which I'm hoping to have it decorated enough to share pictures of it with you all soon because it's my favorite room in the house!}  I took most of the pictures outside though because the Sun Room was a bit too sunny for good pictures this morning, but here's one in her new home.




What's your favorite project you've done?  

This little burlap wreath is like the Energizer Bunny... she keeps going and going and I think she might just be my favorite!

And I'll be linking her up to some of my favorite places.

Love it! The seashells are such a cute addition. Our bathroom is currently undergoing a "beachy" makeover. I'm wondering how I can work in burlap. ;) Those colors are just so summery and fresh - my favorite!
