If you live on the beach, I think it’s pretty safe to say that you have your fair share of driftwood! Driftwood is fun to collect, and even more fun to marvel at. Isn’t it amazing how the ocean water and salt can weather down wood like that? The next time you go on a stroll down the beach, pick up some driftwood to add to your collection, because I’ve got a few things you can do with that!
What if I told you that you could make this craft for only $1? I’m not kidding! Head to your local Dollar Tree for a $1 mirror. You can glue several together to create a large mirror, or you can keep your own hand-sized. Hot glue driftwood around the edge of your mirror!
Depending on the size of your driftwood, you might not even have to glue any together at all! Glue your pieces of driftwood together to create a really unique wall hanging. I guarantee none of your neighbors will have one quite like this!
There’s no better craft than one that recycles SOMETHING you’ve been dying to get rid of..but what about a craft that repurposes two of those items? Well that…that is even better! Use your nautically themed fabric scraps to create a “sail” on your old driftwood boat. Don’t forget the flag!
While I can’t find the exact tutorial for this incredible banister, I couldn’t resist sharing it with all of you! If you have a GIGANTIC piece of driftwood that needs a little coastal loving, reseal it, and use it as a banister! Everyone will be dying to know where you got it!
The folks at Houzz show their readers how to fashion a one-of-a-kind long lasting centerpiece! However, it should be noted that when choosing succulents for your centerpiece, the succulent stems should be at least two inches long!

One of the quickest ways to update your old dining room is to update the lighting! Do so inexpensively with a piece of driftwood! Hang it from your ceiling with sailing rope, and add a string of home decor lights to complete the look! Click the link above for the compete tutorial!

A large piece of driftwood makes for the backbone of this wind chime project! But, you can use your found seashells as the beads of the wind chime! Again, who doesn’t love a two birds, one stone project? 😉
