This is a beautiful decoration for the house and a way of introducing a piece of nature inside. To make a similar decoration you need a piece of driftwood, hooks, nails and some air plants that don’t need soil. You should first clean the wood to get rid of the eventual bugs and unwanted bacteria and then screw the hooks to hang it on the wall. Add the plants and it’s done. The plants need either to be placed in water once or twice a week or to be sprayed with water occasionally.
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 very useful item for any home is a coat rack. If you want to create something original you can make one yourself using a tree branch or a piece of driftwood. You can either mount it on a wall or suspend it from the ceiling or any other structure. Add hooks directly onto the rack or put hangers on it to protect its surface. Make sure it’s big enough to accommodate your clothes and accessories.
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.
A great idea for a decoration would also be a wreath. This is an item that you can make when you have a bunch of small driftwood pieces but no idea what to do with them. The wreath is really simple to make. You just need to glue together the driftwood pieces to form a circle. Hot glue is preferable in this case. The wreath would make a nice decoration for the entrance door or for the wall.
A beautiful piece of driftwood can also be sued to make a peg or stand. Simply attach it to the wall using hooks or nails and leave it as such or add some rope like in this case. You’ll be able to make a beautiful and ingenious decoration for any room of the house, including the bathroom. The rope will serve as a support system for shelves or, in this case, decorative panels with all sorts of messages written on them.
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.
