Christmas is less than two months away, which means I am so excited to commence with all of the wonderful Christmas crafting and decorating.

The backstory: last year we came across this beautiful twist on floral wreaths, and fell in love with it. And not only because it uses wooden beads!

The seashell situation
It’s not for nothing that this beautiful summer cutout features seashells.
See, seashells hold a prominent place in our family’s crafting lore, which was probably the subliminal source for the craft idea.
