Hi Friends Happy Summer!

I am so happy summer has arrived!  We live in a coastal community and I love using natural elements to decorate for summer.  I use fresh flowers, seashells, driftwood, beach glass, and yard sale finds to decorate our home.

I purchased this ships wheel mirror at a yard sale and added seashells from my collection to decorate it.

I hung it in the sitting area of our kitchen/dining room. 

I came up with the idea to use the twine and the seashells because I used an existing nail that was in the wall.  I didn't really feel like adding another hole in the wall so I just used the same nail to hang the mirror.  I hot glued the knob to the existing nail and hung twine from the hook in the back of the mirror.  To cover up the twine and make it look more decorative I glued three sea shells in a row on top of the twine. 

The knob came from an entertainment center that I hacked and used the parts in different ways.
If your interested in reading how I did this you can read about it here & here

This is A Very Easy project to do.

I used a hot glue gun and three sea shells I found on the beach.

I put a dab of glue on the inside of each shell and pressed each one on top of the twine, with the mirror hanging on the wall.

I am so happy I didn't have to put another hole in the wall.

This is an easy fix for just about anything you want to hang.  It will work for picture frames, wreaths, plates, anything that has a hook on the back.
