Sand Dollar Garland

10:23:00 PM

Pottery Barn had a beautiful sand dollar garland 
hanging over one of their headboards.

Here is how I made my own version...

I started with some starfish and sand dollars from 
They are not real but you can
not tell, even close up!

I began by tying them onto a length of waxed twine.

When I got them all on the length of twine...

I added coral between each piece...

Then I hung the garland below my fireplace mantel.

See how to make the seashell candlesticks here.

I think mine came out just as good as theirs!

 I Love Summer!

And when I'm finished with it...
I'm going to hang it over the science table in my classroom!
