Save Your Shells (and Your $$) with This Stunning Wreath

I love a seasonal wreath, especially when you can make it from stuff that’s truly sentimental—like shells you collect on the beach. Plus, a store-bought version will cost you $90—yes, $90!—and it doesn’t even have the fabulous metallic accents that ours does, which we made for about $15. If you’re not going to the beach, that’s okay, you can make the wreath with shells from the craft store. Save yourself a sunburn.

This will always be my favorite picture of my mom, because it displays the sheer joy in her face as she reaches for her favorite present-- a roll of twenties. Happy Mother's Day, Terri. You really are the best! ❤️❤️❤️ (And Happy Mother's Day to anyone else reading this, if it applies. And if it doesn't, have a fabulous Sunday!)
