Many years ago when I worked for a large Pediatric group my office manager brought in these unique ornaments. These are Mr. Savvy's favorite ornaments, but they don't go well with my decor. I found a place to use them this year. They are perfect for a Florida or coastal home.
The ornaments are sand dollars and dyed gar fish scales.
Her family gets the gar fish scales from somewhere in Texas, if I remember correctly.
Then they get together and hand dye and glue each tiny scale onto the sand dollars to create poinsettias, Christmas trees, and angels.
This is one of my favorites. The colors are beautiful.
Her sister owns (maybe owned now) a shop in Destin, Fl. and sells these before the holidays each year.
This is a pretty little angel.
Here is a picture of the gar fish just in case you are interested.
You can find more info here about the fish.
I will share where these ornaments are being used this year soon.
