1 fish 2 fish red fish blue fish... from COCONUTS!
Last night we went out to eat at the Nauti Turtle in Fort Myers. They have a gift shop w/ T-shirts, hats, etc, BUT ALSO local artist stuff.
I really liked these Puffer Fish hanging from the ceiling. Well, at $30, not THAT special! LOL
Started checking them out, and they were COCONUTS, painted bright florescent colors, and the fins & tail were palm leaves painted. I just Googled & couldn't find the Puffers, but I did find these:
It doesn't take an artists talent! Pretty basic. These can be put on stakes OR hung. How cute to have them along a walkway!
Having just bought a home in Cape Coral, I've been trying to decorate w/ bright, happy parrots, fish & lizards around the pool/lanai area. Being dried coconuts, it's a cheap project & should last for a LONG time. Like the author of the article said, these fish can be painted LOTS of ways. I think I may go back & get that Puffer tho... just for a sample. I'll post a pic if I do.
