My Christmas-in-Saipan motto is “do the best you can with what you’ve got.” Ok, actually, that’s my motto in Saipan decorating overall- haha. Resources that I have in abundance? Shells. Drift wood. Coral. Coconut.
I made stockings (and a tree skirt) out of a drop cloth last year, and thought I’d add driftwood wreaths to the lineup this year.
The assembly was pretty straightforward- tying the driftwood together at the corners with jute by wrapping the cord around each piece of wood and then around the entire stack.
I added linen flowers at each corner (I essentially followed this same flower making process, but used linen instead of felt as my fabric and used hot glue instead of stitching).
