I know this was posted awhile ago, but I love to use sand dollars for plant markers. You just write the plant name in Sharpy pen, spray with polyurethane spray if you think you need to. Take a chopstick and glue the dollar on it. It looks cool if you wind some thin jute string in a criss-cros :Ds over it, too Cheesy

nice- bet they'd make good place setting markers too then!

I know this isn't "outside" - but I saw a beautiful Christmas tree in Florida decorated with sand dollars and little plaid ribbon bows.  Or maybe you could decorate a small tree outside that way for Christmas, or just because!

Print with them
Glue them to a lampshade
Put jump rings between them and make a belt
Sandwich a skewer between two of them, glued together, then anchor the skewer in something for your mantle. Group a bunch of them on different heights of skewers. Maybe paint the whole assembly white or black.
Paint them silver and gold and hang them on your Christmas tree
Lace one on to each of your summer sneakers
Sew them to each corner of a pillow for your sunroom

I ramble, pardon.

I think they would look great hanging from trees with some srakly ribbon streamers.  You could even spray them bright colours if you wanted.  We used to pick them up by the bushel on a beach on the Kitsap peninsula.  The are so cool.  Do any of the broken ones still have the doves?  Those make great jewelry.
