I have this thing about driftwood, large or small I can’t resist a piece, and just have to pick up any that I see.
My collection of driftwood is getting a little ridiculous, there’s only so many ‘artfully displayed bowls of driftwood’ you can have about the house before people start giving you odd looks.
I decided to combine some driftwood with a bit of colour and make something for the garden.
This is one of those projects which is knocked together pretty darn quick, yet still looks rather impressive, if I do say so!
All you need is some driftwood, coloured threads, a drill and some string for hanging.
Step 1. Wrap the pieces of driftwood with a variety of different coloured threads. I went for 2 or 3 bands of colour, with the beginning and end of each piece of thread secured with a dab of glue.
Step 2. Using a small drill bit, drill a hole in the top of each piece of driftwood.
Step 3. Thread a length of string through the holes made in each piece of driftwood.
And it’s done, well apart from finding somewhere for it to hang.
I do love a quick and simple project!
