11.12. Driftwood Ornament

Driftwood ornaments bring nature indoors in a pretty and subtle way. If you have chosen an artificial Christmas tree these ornaments make it look more earthy and traditional. Ornaments work perfectly in a modern tree, with glittery baubles or with traditional straw decor (himmeli). This ornament is also an easy to make filler to a tree that lacks decor. Gather driftwood from the ground and dry a few days before crafting.

You will need:

Driftwood pieces
Garden twine
Drilling machine plus 2,5 mm drill
Japanese saw
(Golden spray paint)

How to:

Step 1. To make driftwood pieces look neat saw off a little bit from both ends.

Step 2. Spray paint the branches if you like. I used cling film to keep half of the branch without paint. I was spray painting table legs and branches got some paint to the cover at the same time.

Step 3. Drill a hole to one end. Put a loop from garden twine.
