Anchors Aweigh Wreath

Since my son's room has a nautical theme, I decided to create a nautical themed wreath for his bedroom door. I recently found some burlap with red and blue anchors, and I bought a bunch of it. I used some last week to create a Patriotic Burlap Wreath for our front door, and today I used the rest to create this nautical wreath for my baby boy.

For this wreath, I used a square wire wreath form, anchor burlap, a wooden sailboat, a "Keep Out" sign, and wooden anchors.
I painted the sailboat and anchors red, white, and blue. 
I added the burlap to the wreath form all around the wreath. Originally, I left two corners empty for the sailboat and the keep out sign.
I added the keep out sign and the sailboat.

I decided to use this patriotic burlap to make pennants for the wreath using this burlap and the anchor I painted.
I added the anchors to the pennants and attached them to the wreath.
I really enjoyed making this wreath, and I hope my son loves it when he sees it when he wakes up in the morning. Anchors Aweigh!

    5. Too cute for words. I have got to try make one for our little house down at the coast. Strangely enough the complex where we stay is called Anchors Aweigh, lol, so this is perfect in more ways than one.
