I live in Seaside, Oregon where the city is fronted by a sandy beach 1 1/2 miles long. There are always little pieces of driftwood sprinkling the beach that are sun bleached and worn that can be repurposed into a pretty wall hanging…a project the whole family can participate in to make a lasting memory of a fun day on the beach!
Step One: Use a pen to mark where to drill holes. (When you are drilling these holes you can also drill one at each end for the wire hanger.)
Step Two: Make colorful bead sections cutting most of the wire 3″ long, but making a few sections 4″ long for contrast. Us needle nose pliers to make loops at the ends of the wire.
Step Three: connect the bead sections.
Step Four: Cut pieces of wire depending on the thickness of your driftwood.
Step Five: Insert the wire pieces and cap the ends with a bead. Then attach the bead strands. Drill a hole at each end for the wire hanger. Loop the hanger at both ends to secure it to the driftwood.
There you go! A cute wall hanging from a piece of driftwood….a perfect beachy memory to hang at home!
