We love the beach. Who doesn’t though right? We enjoy taking a beach vacation in December while it’s cold back home so that we can enjoy some warm sunny weather. We enjoy heading to the water in the summer soaking up the sun.

Supplies Needed for the Coastal Beach Wreath

  • 14 Inch Wire Wreath (Dollar Tree)
  • Metal Relax sign (Dollar Tree)
  • Sea Shells (either on hand or Dollar Tree carries them)
  • 3 packages of clothespins or upcycle some if you have them already
  • White Spray Paint or any white paint you have
  • Coffee pod or coffee
  • Container to let the clothespins soak in coffee, I used a metal tin I had
  • Waverly Chalk Paint (color was called Pool)
  • Paintbrush
  • Hot Glue Gun

How to Put Together the Coastal Clothespin Wreath

Start by spray painting one package of the clothespins white. For this wreath, we had to do 2 coats to get them fully covered.

The 2nd package of clothespin we will take and soak them in the coffee for a few hours. This will give them that darker color. Once you have soaked them, let them dry. If the weather is warm enough, they will dry quicker outside.

The 3rd package of clothespins we will use half of. Take the half and paint the tops with the Pool Waverly chalk paint. If you can’t find that particular color, Amazon has a decent selection. The closest color would probably be “cascade” from FolkArt.

After all of the clothespins have dried, it’s time to put them on the wire wreath. To do this, just clip them onto the inner wire of the wreath alternating the colors as you put them on.

Once all of the clothespins are on, add the shells using the hot glue gun. You can place these however you want, but we decided to go with three on each side. A larger one on top, then two smaller ones under that.

My second option would have been to place them in a curved row going up each side of the wreath. I really like the three together as shown in the picture though.

For the relax sign, you can paint it or leave it. For this coastal beach wreath, we chose to paint it with a few coats of the Pool colored chalk paint. If you don’t want the blueish color, you can use any color of paint to fit your preference. It may take 2 or 3 coats for it to get a complete cover.

Hanging the DIY Coastal Beach Wreath

There are a couple of ways that you can hang the coastal beach wreath on the door. It’s really up to preference and which option you like best.

  • You can use some nautical rope to create a hanger on the top.
  • Place it on your wreath hanger using the wreath’s wire. This is what we chose to do just so that it was more secure on the door and not flapping around as we opened and shut the door.

I think the DIY coastal beach wreath turned out pretty good. At first I wasn’t too sure about painting the “relax” sign the Pool blue color, but I like it.
