16-inch Seashell Wreath by Valerie
This is a beautiful wreath. It arrived in good condition and fits perfectly with the lighthouse/coastal theme in my kitchen. I have this wreath on my kitchen table with the pineapple flameless candle (H195007) in the center. The greenery is plastic but blends well with the coastal theme of the wreath. I am very happy with this purchase and all other Valerie items I have in my home.
I have my bathroom done in sea shell decorations. This was perfect for the wall. Looks great with the sea shell shower curtain and the candle impressions sea shell flameless candles.
Nice touch of summer!
I have had other sea shell wreaths before and they do not hold up well between summer heat and difficulty of adhering materials. That being said I was pleased with Valerie's version! I agree that silk greenery would have been a nice touch. One shell came off in transit but a touch of hot glue took care of that. Thanks for giving my home the sea side feel I love!
This is a lovely wreath though I don't like the plastic. I would have preferred silk.
SUMMER HAS ARRIVED
I REALLY LIKED THIS WREATH. A FEW OF THE SHELLS WERE OFF DUE TO SHIPPING, BUT I JUST HOT GLUED THEM BACK ON. COULD BE A 5 STAR IF THE GREENERY WAS SILK .
A sign of spring
I bought this to put on my front door for spring and summer. It is beautiful but could have been finished a bit better. The greenery is plastic (should have been silk) and not secured to the wreath and often falls out when the door is opened or closed. Plus many of the seashells are tied on with dark string with the knots exposed so easy to see. I will try to turn the strings to the back. The overall look is still pretty but I was a bit disappointed with how it was finished.
Welcome to my office!
My wreath adorns my office french door. As the Director of an assisted living community, it gets lots of exposure & compliments every day. It mimics the decor of the building & we live near the Gulf of Mexico, so it is a perfect fit. I, too, had to get out the glue gun (thus, 4 stars), but I consider that a minor inconvenience for such a pretty & unique wreath. The greenery is not an issue for me. Valerie is "spot on" with this one!
Love the Variety
A neighbor made a shell wreath for many years ago so I really appreciate the work that oes into a wreath such as this. The one I received is beautiful and I love the color and variety of the shells. My old one has no starfish so this is a lovely addition to my home. All of the extra details such as beach stones and moss finished the entire presentation beautifully.
Cute but Poor Quality
Recd wreath - items on wreath were poorly hot glued to wreath...you can see glue gobs, glue strings all over shells and greens. Greens are plastic, not silk. Just not what I would expect from a Valerie Parr Hill item.
This wreath is very nice and looks great when on the wall. The only thing is that the sprigs and some of the shells fell off in delivery. A glue gun or super glue is needed to put them back in place, otherwise it's a great decoration.
Pretty but needs a little help
This wreath is nicer than I expected. It is a little different from the picture in that the branches making the base are painted white...sort of white washed. I like that. The shells are tied on. What needs help is the plastic greenery. The greens should be silk and not just stuck between the branches of the base unsecured. When hanging the wreath the greens fall out or hang at awkward angles. I will have to bring out my glue gun. That is why I only gave it three stars. Despite all this I still like the wreath.
