Driftwood Photo Holder

I found this beautiful piece of large
driftwood on the beach.

One of my favorite things to do is to treasure hunt on the beach.

I found this great piece of driftwood one day. 

It stands almost 2 feet tall.

The color and the texture of this wood was awesome! 

To preserve the color, I gave it a coat of Polycrylic.

All I really needed to do was to screw on a clip.

and add a stand for sturdiness.

This driftwood is an awesome sculptural piece.

I added a starfish to enhance the nautical theme.

I also added an 8x10 photo of my baby to complete the look.

I've never met a piece of driftwood I didn't love!

  1. Susan this is awesome!~I love to treasure hunt too on the beach. We were just there a few weeks ago and I could kick myself for not coming home with any shells.

  2. This is one of the best ideas for driftwood I have seen! Thinking something similar will end up in my house during the summer season. Love it!

  3. I am so glad I decided to follow you...I love all your projects but this one might just be my favorite!! I will have to give it a try!

  4. How creative you are! I bet you could sell those like hot cakes!

  5. I don't think I'd have thought to do this. But you have the eye for repurposing. Thanks for joining my first ever party!
