For a coastal wreath you might want to start with a base made of twigs (like in the video above) or something like a grapevine wreath.
Once you have your wreath base you can do one of two things. You can start adding your seashells one by one in the desired design of your choice, or you can add the leaves to the twig base and then your grasses over that and then add your shells will be added last!
This is all up to you, so just use your judgement to design something to suit your style. For inspiration you can view some of these

Once you have decided on your base and whether you want the leaves on or off then you will want to picture how your shells will be arranged.
It might be best to make a good sketch of your design.
Step 1: Cover your twig base or grapevine with leaves to fill it out.
Step 2: Add some wisps of grasses around the wreath. Bear grass, lavender and artificial wheat might look good with this style of wreath.
The last step will be up to you, place your shells wherever you like. Follow your sketch to make it easier and ensure it turns out as you’d like it too.
