    My friends and i had an idea this weekend about making a seashell "wreath" with a veil attached to the bottom. Has anyone seen anything like this? I know I am not explaining it well I was just hoping one of you might get my drift! :)

                Thanks Wendy, but I am really looking for something more like a seashell halo with a veil attached to the back! thanks for your help!

                  are you a DIY'er? I saw this amazing post on another site earlier about making your own flower wreath, it might work with some adjustment. I can find the link if you might want to think about making your own? :-)

                    Yes! I would love to find a way to make it myself! :)

                      well, this article is about making your own flower wreath, but maybe you could find a way to attach stems to shells and put them together into a wreath. Then you could gather some tulle or long ribbons in your wedding colors and attach to the back for the veil part?

                      i'd love to see pics if you do this, sounds like a very cool, unique idea!
