Beach house garland

Summer is coming and with the festive season fast approaching I thought I would try my hand at making a holiday wreath from all my finds on the beach.
I chose shells with mother of pearl showing, kelp, tiny crabs and everlasting flowers. The "holly" is seaweed sprayed white!
Everything, apart from the ribbon and the fixing materials has been picked up and carefully selected from our coastline.


Shells, everlasting spring flowers, kelp and seaweed make a festive garland for a beach house.

To see more beach house decor ideas go to Nautical but nice
