Wreath for the Porch

I wanted a colorful wreath for the front door to go with our colorful makeover, but I didn't want a traditional wreath of flowers or grapevines. I wanted something beachy. While we were walking through the dollar store I grabbed a miniature hoolahoop to use as the foundation for the wreath. M suggested flip-flops and later I went and found seashells. I got out my hot glue gun and here's our end result. We were going to put kids' sand shovels cross-ways in the middle, but I couldn't find any big enough or a color that would work. I was going to put a welcome sign in the middle, but we already have a welcome sign on the porch. Then I thought I'd glue letters to say something like: "enjoy summer." But the colors of the letters didn't look right. So, this is the end result. I took this picture with my camera phone, so the colors may not look right. The flip-flops are peach and aqua, here I think they look more basic orange and green. What do you think of our creation?
