 DRIFTWOOD VASE DIY

 

I love driftwood decor. It has that nautical and summer feel! So I thought I share this easy Drift Wood DIY with you. You can add touches of driftwood through out your home and tie it in with almost any color or style in your home…… It goes with everything.  Add any color of flowers to this woodsy vase to an end table or combine  it with a candle and shells… It’s really that easy!

The real fun is making the vase! Here are the directions: You can find driftwood pieces almost any beach, river or even sometimes  along the shore of a lake.

 Place the selected drift wood pieces on a flat wooden surface that you can staple on. Position the staple gun right on top of two pieces of wood and press the lever to the staple gun until the two pieces are stapled together. Repeat the process untill all 30 pieces are stapled.

Just make sure you don’t staple you pet’s tail like I almost did. My cat Skylar loves to watch many of my DIY projects. He  jumped on my kitchen table right when I was using the Staple gun!  Crazy Cat 🙂

Wrap the stapled pieces of wood around the glass vase and staple the ends together. You will need someone to hold it while you staple this last part.
