On a recent trip to Urban Farmhouse I came across absolutely fantabulous driftwood garlands. I had to have it. I love the rustic look, the individualism of the wood, like snowflakes, no two chunks are alike.
Once I got the garland home I wasn't sure what to do with it.
At first I thought I would use as a garland across the bookcase in the den. Ew.
Then I thought I'd put it in a bowl with a candle in the middle. Eh.
Tried it as a runner down the middle of the dresser in the den. Yuck.
I was stumped. Get it, wood...stumped. I kill myself.
I was upset to say the least. I had this great garland and nothing to do with it.
The DIY Fairy came down and bonked me in the head and it came to me...a wreath.
I started with a medium foam wreath form, some left over muslin and the driftwood.
Startling confession: I had to buy a hot glue gun for this project. Yes, that's right, I call myself a DIY blogger and I didn't even own a hot glue gun! Blasphemy, I know.
Here's how it went down.
Where were we....
My heart hurt a bit to cut it up. But I did it. I'm brave like that.
The finished product.
So beachy! Can you hear the ocean? Yeah I can't either, but I still love it.
If you want your own driftwood garland head over to Urban Farmhouse. Lisa will ship one to you! (After you pay for it of course!)
