    Our wedding is December 11 so I came up with the idea of making my own Sand Dollar ornaments. I searched online for inspiration and found an ornament that I fell in love with.  Unfortunately, each ornament was about $6.50 and 8.00. Here's a picture of the ornament:

    Here is what I made using sand dollars from quality shells, ribbon from Michael's and Walmart, a glue gun, shells from the dollar store.

        I forgot to put that we are going to put a copy of the legend of the sand dollar with each; such a beautiful story for the Christmas season.

            They look gorgeous and so much more personal since you made them yourself.
