Sanibel Santa

I think this is may be one of the best things I have ever done.It 's what I think Santa would like if he took a shelling vacation to Sanibel Island,after the hectic days of the holiday season.
I originally made him when I was going thru a clay sculpting phase,and he was meant for Jon.He had held fishing gear,but now,he's holding a real jewel box shell with a pearl(it's fake) in it,and he has his golden shell bag,with mini "craft" shells.

This first wreath has "craft" shells and fake(meaning plastic) starfish on it.I used plastic because it hangs outside,on our back door.Instead of ribbon,I used real rope.And the netted bow is meant to be reminiscent of a fish net(which I intend to use someday).
I got the idea for this second wreath from Tootie's blog.....I just hot glued all my beach treasures,broken Sand Dollars,"craft" shells,and bent up Starfish to a grape vine wreath.We have a yard full of Spanish Moss,so I just grabbed some out of our trees(if you should ever do that,either spray it with bug spray,or moisten it and microwave it for about one minute-you don't want any critters in your house!)
