Some ideas for creating beach themed wreaths include using shells, starfish and flip flops. Use these items to create a base of the wreath, or add them to a burlap base for decoration.
Starting with a twig base, drape fishing net draped across the circle to create a nautical theme. Then add clam shells to the bottom of the wreath in an intricate pattern with sailor's rope moving between them. Use sailor's rope to spell the word beach, which can then be placed across the wreath for added design. Another use for sailor's rope is to braid it together in a circular pattern to create a wreath.
Another way to use shells on a wreath is to add them in various places on a yarn wrapped wreath. Wrap blue and white yarn, colors that are reminiscent of the beach, a circular base. Then glue chosen beach items to the wreath.
To create a wreath using flip flops, attach a group of shoes at the heels in a fan-like pattern, ultimately making a circle. Then place a flower, such as a daisy, at the center of the wreath. Another option for making a wreath from flip flops is to attach them to a premade circle.
