Its that time again – time to change out the DIY patriotic wreath on the front door. This time, I decided to go with a DIY coastal wreath since we are totally loving the summer and the beach and not to mention that we just came back from spending 2 days by the pool!
If you have been following me for a while, you know that I am not a fan of spending $$$ on a wreath that we change every so often. My goal is to always make a wreath for under $5 or at the most $10. And guess what, this time, I succeeded in making it for FREE!! See how it turned out!
I just re-used a bunch of things I already had in my craft stash. But, if you were to buy product to make it, it would still be under $10 (provided you had the grapevine wreath already)!

Materials needed for DIY coastal wreath –
- Grapevine wreath – I reused my old one.
- Assorted Star fish – I had these left over from an old project. You can also find them here
- Welcome wood cutout – re-used from my spring wreath.
- Mini drink umbrellas
- Hot glue gun
How to make the DIY coastal wreath –
Step 1 – The sea stars I had were a really bright color, I started by painting them with white craft paint. I went with just one coat of paint since that gave a nice pastel color to the star fish.
I also had my little helper with me, who basically painted most of the sea stars.
Step 2 – Glue the painted sea stars to the wreath. Use a small dab of the hot glue, so it is easy to remove them when it is time to reuse the wreath.
Step 3 – Attach the wood “welcome” cut out. This was originally unfinished wood that I had painted yellow for my spring wreath. I simple re-painted it white. I used 2 little dabs of hot glue on each end to attach it.
Step 4 – Time to attach the mini umbrellas. I used 3 of these. Add a little hot glue to the tip of the umbrella and insert it.
That’s it! The DIY coastal wreath is ready!! It only took about half an hour to make it – including all the painting. And I love how it turned out! Here is a close up of the painted sea stars. the pastel colors add a nice touch of color to the wreath.
And the tiny umbrellas bring a relaxing touch of the beach to it!
