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.
This is a particularly beautiful decoration because the contrast between the driftwood piece and the delicate pendants and necklaces is quite strong and visible. To make such a piece you’ll need a piece of driftwood or a fallen tree branch, some wool or string, a hammer, nails, a ruler, a pencil and a drill. Insert the nails. They will serve as hooks. Drill a hole into the wall and insert a nail to hang the decoration from. Attach the string and you’re done.
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.
