My June ‘2014 Wreath of the Month’ is my most favorite wreath that I’ve ever made.
*I made the wreath base out of empty water bottles.
*I sculpted the critters, trees, lily-pads,
boat & fisherman out of polymer clay.
*I made a hook out of wire and sculpted a little worm for it.
I used fishing line and hung the worm on the hook
from the fishing pole that I made out of a toothpick.
I used some shells which my late Grandma in-law gave to me.
I added a bit of salvaged paper raffia for sea-weed.
I had the best time creating, sculpting and decorating this wreath.
It’s a fun wreath and has gotten many compliments.
The men and boys in my family especially like it.
Fishing has always been a big part of my family.
A fishing trip would be an enjoyable way to celebrate Father’s day.
I hope all the Dad’s & caretakers of our children
have a pleasant month of good times & fun
whatever your hobby or favorite sport.
Here’s why I’m making a ‘Wreath of the Month’ for every month of 2014.
Here’s a photo of the way I made the wreath base out of empty plastic water bottles.
I used shipping tape to hold them together
Very creative! I especially love your seaweed! Happy June to you!
Happy June to you too! 🙂
Thank you for showing me how you made the wreath. I may use that as a base for our class wreath next year.
You’re very welcome Nadine
Thanks so much. You gave me a big smile this morning..
If you use the base, I hope you’ll take photos and share the fun wreaths you make.
I’d love to see them.
Welcome to my blog!
Thanks for visiting and leaving a sweet compliment.
I hope you’ll visit again sometime.
It’s adorable, love the idea to recycle the water bottles and how special to use your late grandmother-in-laws seashells. I’m sure the men & boys were happy to see something leaning towards them, when most crafts go towards women. Father’s Day have thing to do with it I wonder? 🙂

I hope you don’t mind, but I edited your comment a bit to make it accurate. I edited in grandmother-in-law to replace mother-in-law.
Thanks so much Sassy
My Grandmother-in-law was a very crafty lady. She could make really pretty things with shells.
I agree about there not being much male oriented crafts such as wreaths, so that’s why I was so keen on posting this one for June when Father’s Day is celebrated. 🙂
I think it’s great for Father’s Day, know your men must have been happy with this little surprise from you!
They are. I plan to keep it hanging all year round. 🙂
I think it is my favourite too, love recycling element too.
We drink an alot of water and I got the idea there must be something crafty I could do with the bottles. Making a wreath with them was a lot of fun.
What a great use for those water bottles. I love what you’ve done with them and the undersea world.
Using the bottles turned out better than I’d hoped.
The undersea world was kind of a domino effect: one idea led to another and another and so on. Lol It was a lot of fun. 🙂
What a fun wreath!
Thanks Sheryl 🙂
So clever!! You take things most of us would throw away and make the cutest things!!
Thanks so much Charlotte 🙂
