Are you all enjoying your summer?
I sure am. I have been busy making summertime memories with my little family.
One of which was a trip to the beach, probably the highlight of our summer so far.
So I have been wanting to make driftwood garland ever since I saw one hanging from a beach house a few summer ago and I now finally had enough driftwood to create one for myself.
Like most of my projects, this was incredibly simple to make.
I started off with 112 pieces of driftwood.
And like I said, I have been collecting them for quite some time now.
Once I got started, it went by really fast. I even had my two boys help out with this part.
They felt pretty cool using a drill for the first time.
Once the driftwood was all drilled, I fed some jute twine through the holes.
I wrapped some tape to the end of the twine to help it guide through the holes easily.
This part moved pretty quickly as well.
Once the twine was through all of the driftwood pieces, I tied a large knot at the end. I also tied a loop on the top to give it something to hang from.
My driftwood garland is over 5 feet long. You could make it whatever length you want.
Just give or take on the amount of driftwood you use.
I think it turned out great.
I love the beach house look; it adds to our front porch.
Some of our neighbors have even commented on it.
I really enjoy working with driftwood. In fact, here are a few of my other Driftwood projects:
Thank you so much City Farmhouse for letting me stop by today and share my driftwood garland.
It is always a pleasure!
