NAPKIN WREATHAPALOOZA NUMBER ONE

I am in love with doodle art and found examples of shells on the internet that I drooled over.  But I avoid any craft that takes too much investment in time because I can’t get my $$$ out of it.  I got a stack of Caspari napkins at a garage sale the other day and wondered if I could decopauge the napkin to actual shells.  TA DAH it worked!

 

51549525-zentangle-stylized-set-blue-seashells-hand-drawn-vector-illustration-isolated-on-white-backgrounds-sI found these images on 123rf, but paper would be too stiff to work on actual shells.

The napkin is covered with shell images and I glued some of the images on to actual shells and some of the shells I glued to foam core that I picked up at Dollar Tree.  The foam core cuts REALLY easy, and I just cut the pieces out and glued on a mix of actual shells and the foam core look a likes.

The wreath is soooo fresh and beachy, and I will add it to my inventory for my Merry Mermaid booth in November.

The first wreath was so fun to make and ideas keep tumbling out of my head so I decided to MAKE A WREATH  page and add each new wreath post here.  My goal is to have 24 fresh and affordable inspiring wreath ideas.  I am calling the collection “WREATHAPALOOZA”
