A cute and simple driftwood craft to hang anywhere in your house or even outside! If you live by the water, this is a great activity after going and collecting some pieces of driftwood and seaglass.
A Driftwood Craft For Any Time of Year!
My daughters were doing crafts the other day with some stones and some driftwood. I had laid out a bunch for them and their friends. One of my daughter’s friends painted a lighthouse, and it was really cute! That is what gave me the idea to do a nice lighthouse on some driftwood and add some touches to it.
This craft is a simple but beautiful craft because it is the small touches that add to it. Each part, by itself, is nothing special, but when you add them all together it comes out to be a craft that is sweet and fun! My favorite part about it is that it can truly be hung anywhere. If you have a nautical theme going in your house, this would be the perfect addition. If you don’t though it is great too! The simplicity of it means you can put it anywhere in your house.
I also think this would be great to hang out outdoors. Maybe on a front porch or near a front door would be a good place to catch the attention of people coming in and out of your house. We love having nautical decorations, as we have many in our Etsy shop to buy to do crafts, so this is definitely a fun one.
