I had decoupaged these letters with some paper (the usual), but they didn't stand out to me, so I decided to crush up some shells I had bought, and hot glued them onto the letters. I loved how it turned out.
For the wreath, I bought a wood wreath and spray painted it an ivory color, then I hot glued the dollar store shells, and a net to give it a driftwood beachy feel. Q was in charge of picking out the shells she wanted to use and handed to me to glue on. The large starfish was on clearance at the craft store (score!)
