Sand Dollar Wreath -- Whether your door is a gateway to the beach or leads right into a drift of snow, dress it with a wreath adorned with coastal elements. Spray-paint a grapevine twig white, then hot-glue a circle of sand dollars or other flat shells around the wreath opening. Weave a sheer organdy ribbon through the shells and tie the tails into a simple bow.
Collecting sand dollars is rewarding. They have striking shapes and designs and can be used for craft projects or displayed in a room. However, sand dollars picked up from the beach will be dirty. Before you use them for decor items, you'll need to clean and preserve them.
