"Under the Sea" Ornaments, Part 2


Today, I will be sharing more of the ornaments I have been creating to decorate my new Summer "Under the Sea" Tree!!!!!

In my previous post, I shared some of the ornaments that I made using sea shells that my neighbor collected while living in Miami over the Winters........
 Click HERE if you missed that post........

 Today, I will be showing you ornaments that I made from Star Fish, wooden Anchors and Sand Dollars.......

I ordered a dozen wooden Anchor cut outs from Amazon ..........
 I painted all of them aqua.........
 I then embellished them by gluing on small shells.......
Beads and silver and gold trim that I bought in the Dollar Bins in Michael's......
I have a stash of old costume jewelry that I have collected for some time and I decided to use some of the earrings as embellishments......
I then glittered all the ornaments.......
I had 4 sand dollars left over from a previous project so I decided to make them into ornaments.......
I painted the edges around the sand dollars gold, glued small shells and rhinestone costume earrings to them.........
I also painted a few shells aqua and then embellished them with rhinestone trim.....
And glitter of course!!!
I bought some star fish at Michael's..........
I painted a few gold.....
 Added the silver and gold trim.....
 And also embellished them with old earrings from my costume jewelry stash......
 I also painted 2 of the star fish aqua.......
 And again added silver trim and old earrings......
 In my next post, I will show you the rest of the ornaments that I made for my Summer "Under the Sea" Tree......
 So I hope you will be back to visit again soon.......
