Beach Please Hat Wreath

My blogging friends and I have decided to create crafts using supplies from the dollar store, and we're hosting a Dollar Store Craft Link Party so you can also share your dollar store crafts! So I decided that it was time to make a new wreath for our front door. So I went to the Dollar Tree to collect some supplies. I like the idea of using a hat as a wreath, and I remember seeing a hat-shaped Betsey Johnson purse with the phrase "Beach Please" on it. So I bought a sun hat and other items from the Dollar Tree to create my hat wreath.

I bought a sun hatrope, blue marbles, burlap ribbon, shells, and a couple floral picks. I decided not to use the burlap ribbon.

I removed the blue ribbon from the hat.

I hot glued some rope onto the hat and attached rope to use to hang the wreath.

I separated the greenery from the floral picks. 

I hot glued the greenery onto the hat.

Then I added some shells.

On another part of the hat, I added greenery and a rope bow with shells on the ends.

Originally, I considered the wreath complete at this point, but once I started blogging about it and looking at the pictures, I felt it was missing something...

I brought out my supplies again and got back to work. I store my shells in my Rae Dunn Anchor Cannister and my marbles in the Rae Dunn Bloom Cannister.

I used rope to write the word "beach."

Then I wrote "Please" in rope.

Originally, I wrote "beach" with a lowercase b...

I decided to make it an uppercase B.

I added shells and blue marbles to the empty space on the hat.

Lastly, I added more marbles around the top edge of the hat.

Now that Beach Please Hat Wreath is all done!
