Nautical Decor Wreath… Inspired by Lunenburg Nova Scotia

July 22nd, 2013 | Crafts, Travel, Wreaths

If you follow me on Instagram (if you’re not, you really should!) you’d know this week we took our fam on a day trip to the Fisheries museum of the Atlantic in Lunenburg, NS. While we live very close to the ocean, taking in some of the touristy sites was actually quite fun. The kids (really Justin and I) had so much fun playing in the touch tank.  Look how breath taking the scenery is-


Did you know Lunenburg is the home of the Bluenose, which appears on the Canadian 10¢ piece? Plus, its UNESCO World Heritage Site! There are so many fabulous things to see and do! Just taking in some of the deep history of the town, stunning architecture, the amazing restaurants and shops, and of course the beautiful ships and seafood (yumm!)

Since picking up a few tidbits from the shore, and taking our little day trip I’ve been feeling quite nautical, and inspired to create. Have it be that nautical decor is haut, haut, haut right now I thought I may as well jump on board. I love wreath making so I though some new door decor was in order. Have a look-

I used my new Silhouette to stencil the ‘Welcome Aboard’ onto the driftwood.

I used 100% May Arts Ribbon to create this nautical decor piece. White faux burlap 445-15-01, navy linen 368-15-03, and burlap cord SP10. I love how this combination works together, what do you think?

If you’re ever in Nova Scotia I encourage you to visit Lunenburg (and me of course). The sights are stunning, the air is crisp, and plus you get to tour boats and touch fish and swim in the ocean, FUN times ahead!
