Crafty Christmas: A Fisherman's Wreath

What's the perfect Christmas decor for your favorite fisherman or beach-dwelling family? Why, a Fishing Bobber wreath of course!!

I originally saw this idea on Pinterest and knew it would be perfect for my in-laws home at the beach. Over the Thanksgiving break, while at said in-laws house, I took a couple of minutes to create my own version of the "Fishing Bobber Wreath" (not very catchy, I know, but I have no idea what else to call it).

A quick trip to the dollar store yielded a smallish artificial wreath form the perfect size for a mini wreath that fit directly above the front door. As for the fishing bobbers, they were a bit trickier to find. I assure you, the folks at the local sport supply shop looked at me a bit funny when I asked "is this all you have" when I reviewed their fishing bobber supply and came up short. Thankfully, Walmart had an abundant supply of bobbers and they were much cheaper.

A glue gun, some perfectly placed bobbers and a cute little bow from some Walmart ribbon, and wal-lah, there you have it. Christmas at the beach!

Goes perfectly with the crab-pot Christmas tree gracing their front lawn! 
These guys are extremely popular down at the beach right now and available in several different sizes.
Alas, I did not make this, but you can order your own here!
