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.
