Good day friends! Is anyone else out there dreaming of summer?
Cocktails outside. Long, lingering sunny days. Bright blooming flowers.
And of course anything beach side.
I sure am! I had a styrofoam tree leftover from Christmas crafting. I never got to this one and rather than tucking it away into the Christmas bins for next year, I decided to make a year ’round project with the tree form and splash some more sunny beach decor into the house.
I collected some small pieces of driftwood from the beach and I will admit I bought some as well. The pieces needed to be just 2-4 inches long.
I started at the base of the tree hot gluing bulkier pieces neatly together and working my way up. The pieces have to fit together like a puzzle as to not expose the styrofoam in between. The driftwood pieces should also hang over the edge of the tree base a bit for a natural shape. Keep gluing round and round til you get to the top!
The last step to making a driftwood tree is to adhere a flat round piece of driftwood to the bottom to create the tree stump.
Finally, shop a spot around the house to display the driftwood tree all year!
Are we any closer to summer yet?
