Can you believe this Starfish Wreath was made from a thrift store holiday berry wreath? I teamed up with a great group of bloggers for the Thrift Store Upcycle Challenge! We shopped at our local thrift stores and chose two items, one wreath and one other item of our choice to exchange with another blogger.
I received this holiday berry wreath for my first project. At first I thought what am I going to do with that to make it more like spring! But after stripped it down and fluffed it up it was actually a very nice wreath.
I really hated to do anything to it, but this was a challenge. After much contemplation, I decided this wreath could use a nautical makeover. Let me show you how I made it~
