Driftwood is a form of marine debris and it usually becomes a form of shelter and food for birds, fish and other aquatic species. However, it can also be used as part of decorative furniture and other art forms. It’s a popular element in fish tanks and it can also be used to create other types of decorations for the home and even some practical items. We have selected 10 examples to illustrate this idea.
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.
