Jaxty's Place

My place to ramble about my family, my crafts, my travels and life.

Sand Dollar Project

on August 29, 2016

After bringing home 14 sand dollars from St. Simons Island, I spent a few days bleaching them and drying them in the sun. The darker ones needed a few soaks in the bleach water to turn them white. After a trip to Hobby Lobby for a shadow box frame, which already had a pretty burlap background, I then picked out my 9 favorite sand dollars and hot glued them to the burlap backing.

I printed “sea island, georgia” onto cream-colored cardstock and punched it out with a punch I had. I affixed it to the burlap with two beaded pins that came with the frame.

Then I hung it on the wall leading into the kitchen.

Easy Peasy! Now we have a fun reminder of our great getaway to Georgia and my first sand dollar collection.

Sorry for the glare on the photos. It’s really hard to take pictures of glass.
