Materials and Tools:
cedar or juniper branches
seashells, starfish, sand dollars
ribbon (or large, tied bow)
1. Stick small bunches of juniper into a balsam wreath for initial placement. After you've decided where you want them, hot-glue them into the wreath.
2. Do the same with the seashells and sea glass. Place them around the wreath, and once you're satisfied with their placement, dab some hot glue on the back and adhere to the wreath. Make sure shells and glass items are fully secure before hanging wreath.
3. Attach a tied bow, or tie ribbon into large bow and tie it onto the wreath.
4. You may want to wrap ribbon wire around the top of wreath for final touch.
