Under the Sea; Ocean Themed Christmas Tree
My first ocean themed ornament I made was a super simple jelly fish (right) made with cheap clear glass bulbs and hot glued iridescent ribbon. The "leg" ribbons have wire in them to shape. I made sea urchins with some ugly glass bulbs I had and glued some organic looking beads then spray painted them gold. (left)
Sorry, these starfish are real and I sprayed them with gold paint and sprinkled with glitter. You could easily make some out of fimo!
This colorful anemone was made from yarn; I looped some yarn together like a bow then hot glued "legs"
The scallop was just enhanced with colored pens and glitter! I also painted sand dollars silver and other shells gold and collected beautiful glass ornaments. My husband still wants a more traditional tree and I agree, I want two trees this year, I have so many new ideas!
