DIY Rope Nautical Wreath and My Summer Mantel


I had fun creating this DIY Rope Nautical Wreath for my summer mantel. 


I shared how I put this wreath together on my YouTube channel below. 



My inspiration for this wreath came from How To Nest For Less and her blog post here


Here are the supplies that I picked up from Michael's and Hobby Lobby. 



I originally bought 100 feet of this natural sisal rope from Hobby Lobby. I had to go back and get another 50 feet to complete the wreath. 

I just hot glued on my starting piece of rope to the straw wreath form (leave on the plastic wrap to the wreath form). I wrapped the rope around the wreath until completely covered. 



The starfish came from Michael's. It was a 4 pack and you can find these in the section with seashells, sand, etc. I simply hot glued on the starfish down the right side of the wreath. 






The unfinished wood anchor also came from Michael's. 



I decided to cover the anchor with a piece of map scrapbook paper from October Afternoon. 


I traced the anchor the paper and then cut it out. 

Before gluing the paper, I painted the sides of the anchor with a vanilla acrylic paint. 


I used some of the remaining rope to wrap around the anchor and then hot glued the anchor to the lower left corner of the wreath. 



I love my new summer wreath!



This is how my summer mantel turned out for 2015. 


I made the wooden arrow beach sign as well.

The arrow is also from the unfinished wooden section at Michael's. 

The boat oar I bought at Academy Sports a couple of years ago and just painted it red with some fun stripes. 


The seashells are from past various trips to beaches. The sailboat and lighthouse are from Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago. 



I am so happy with how my beach themed mantel turned out for 2015. 

Thank you for looking!

Hugs, Shelly
