Four Projects Using Driftwood | Driftwood


I have been walking the beach and dragging pieces of driftwood home since I was a kid. I love how the ocean smooths and sands the wood into softened sculptural shapes. It’s hard to find inspiration and references for tasteful ways to use a large (and growing) collection of driftwood. Below you can see a few I’ve managed to find.

I really want to try making this Restoration Hardware driftwood wreath. No longer available but found here.

These lamp bases are wonderful and look like something that would be manageable to make.

I don’t think I would ever be handy enough to even attempt these reindeer heads but I do admire them. Found originally on

The old favourite driftwood sailboat looks like a great starter project or better yet buy it on Etsy here.
