Cute DIY Beach Cottage Wreath with full tutorial

Hi! Its Linda, from Craftaholics Anonymous®, and I’m excited to be here today to share a fun summer craft with you! I love making wreaths and I wanted a fun summery/beachy wreath, so this is what I whipped up! We go to the beach every year for our family vacation, so I’m craving everything beachy right now.

Cute DIY Beach Cottage Wreath I used some giant white starfish that we got at the Outer Banks last year. {no, we did not find them. we bought them for like $1/each.}

And this easy wreath is the perfect quick project that only requires a handful of supplies.
