How to Make a Driftwood Christmas Tree
What could be better decor for the cottage or your front porch at the holidays than a rustic driftwood Christmas tree?
- thick pieces of driftwood in various lengths e.g. 4" to 4'
- a central support rod e.g. rebar, shower curtain
- a strong base to hold up the central support rod e.g. small branch stump
- a drill with a bit that’s a little larger than the diameter of the central support rod
Arrange your driftwood from longest to shortest having enough pieces to reach your desired height.
Drill holes in the mid-point of each piece of driftwood, making sure the holes are large enough for your center rod to go through.
Prepare the central support rod by drilling an appropriately size hole in the small branch stump and then inserting the rod inside.
Starting with your longest, spear each piece of driftwood onto the rod until you are done.
