DIY Sand Dollar Art

WelcomeTwo Peas 2 to another tutorial from Two Peas in a Pod!

The inspiration for this tutorial came from this silver sand dollar picture. It’s simple, yet gorgeous. But it costs over $500!

What???? DIY Sand Dollar Art

So based on that beautiful piece, I made my own DIY sand dollar art. For free! Yep! I received the sand dollars from Dana at CereusArt, and the rest of the items I already had on hand. You can do this too!

Materials Used:

  • Two sand dollars from CereusArt
  • White linen looking fabric
  • Brown twill scrap fabric
  • Foam Core Board
  • Hot Glue
  • Goop Adhesive
  • White 16 x 20 inch frame

I had a white 16 x 20 frame left over from something. I cut a piece of foam core to fit the inside of the frame. Then I covered the foam core with a piece of white linen looking fabric. The fabric is adhered to the back of the foam core with hot glued.

Next, I cut two 6 x 6 inch foam core squares and covered them with brown twill scrap fabric.

I wanted to add another element to the picture, so I found some left-over thin trim pieces and miter cut them to frame the 6 x 6 inch squares. I used wood glue and a pin nail gun to put the trim frame together.

I applied some finishing wax to the trim pieces. It didn’t change the color of the wood, but it gave the wood a more polished, clean look.

The twill covered foam core squares fits snug inside the wood trim frames.

I used all-purpose Goop to adhere the framed 6 x 6 squares to the white fabric board, and also used it to glue the sand dollars to the fabric squares. And that’s it!
