Some more complex items can also be made using driftwood. You’ll need patience and creativity. A driftwood lamp, for example, would be a very beautiful and unique decoration for any home. In this case, the project can go in two directions. You can either make a permanent or a temporary lamp. In both cases you’ll need pieces of driftwood. To make a temporary one you just need to fix the driftwood pieces to the base of a lamp with wire or tape. In you want to make a permanent lamp you can just use glue to keep everything together.
Turn the fireplace mantel into a focal point using color. You can hang different-colored stocking or you can display an array of floral ornaments, also featuring a rainbow of colors. You can even borrow a few ornaments from your Christmas tree and display them on the mantel in a creative way. You can use candles to decorate the mantel and make it glow. Use candles of different shapes and sizes and votives and arrange them as you find it fit. You can also use a few other things in between, like pine cones, Christmas tree branches, tree ornaments, etc.
Another thing you can make using driftwood is a cloth hanger. It’s a practical item and it will also have a unique look. For this project you’ll need some dry tree branches or pieces of driftwood, wire cutters, pliers, a saw, a drill and glue. Start by peeling off the bark from the branches so that your cloths won’t get dirty. Then drill a hole in the middle of the branch and attach the hook using strong glue. Let it dry and your hanger is ready.
