Sand Dollar Ornament Gifts

**WARNING- If you are a close family or friend and like suprises do NOT read on**

This summer my daughter got to spend some time at the beach. While she was there she had the experience of finding LOTS of sand dollars. So many it was slightly embarrassing. They were of all sizes and just beautiful!! This year our gift to our family and friends is a handcrafted sand dollar ornament.

I used a sand dollar, scrapbooking letters (yeah, I tried painting a letter on there I am not that talented) ribbon, glitter, glue, felt (for the back) and 1/8" ribbon for the hanger.

And because life happens when you have 2 small children about 10 of the sand dollars broke. So only select family and friends will receive a sand dollar ornament this year!! Sorry!!

Thanks Lawson for being the gatherer!!

I hope our family and friends will love them!!

Today I am participating in Kimba's DIY Day.

Those are soooo cute! I love that your daughter found them all too. And I love the ribbon at the top. What a fun gift!

I really want to do a beachy tree one year! Thanks for linking up!!!

Very pretty. You could totally change the look by changing the ribbon. :-)
