1. Adhere river stones onto front and sides of wreath using low-temp glue. Adhere stones as close together as possible, using assortment of colors and sizes. (Note: The stones will appear farther apart once spackling is applied.)
2. Use spatula to mix small amount of tan paint with 1/2 cup of spackling in disposable container. Using your fingers, apply small amounts of tinted spackling between stones, filling in gaps. Wipe excess spackling from stones using soft cloth.
3. When all gaps and cracks are filled, wipe remaining spackling from stones using damp sponge. Rinse sponge often. Let set.
4. Repeat sponging until stones are completely clean before allowing wreath to dry thoroughly. (Note: Do not wait until spackling is completely dry as it is difficult to remove film from stones.)
5. Brush Mod Podge on all surfaces of wreath to seal and enhance colors of stones. Let dry.
6. Arrange and adhere shells, moss, starfish, and other natural items on wreath using low-temp glue gun.
7. Wrap double length of raffia around top of wreath to hang.
1. Experiment with colored grout in place of spackling for a different look.
