Driftwood is one of those pieces of beautiful. Each piece is unique and if you think about how it was created, it’s just amazing. A fallen tree goes from water to sand to drifting around. Since I love walking around on the beaches and near the rivers I have collected many pieces of driftwood of all different sizes. So I had enough pieces to create a diftwood wind chime DIY. So I counted all the prices of driftwood and has enough to make one,
- Strong Hemp String
- Screw hook
- 2 small screws
Take each driftwood piece and drill a hole in the middle. The drift wood is pretty hard so I used a 1/8 inch drill bit and that created a hole big enough to pass the rope through.
Odd shapes pieces of driftwood look best when grouping them. Don’t try to organize them they need to look uneven when you hang it. Take the first small screw and tie it first before you start threading the rope. It prevents the chime from breaking. Wet the tip of the rope so its easy to pass through the hole. The last piece you need is to tie the second screw at the top and leave at least 5 inches of rope to attach to screw hook. Use pliers to close the screw hook to avoid the rope from sliding off.
All this was pretty quick project. This driftwood wind chime can be put anywhere. Its impact on my front door creates a beautiful garden wind chimes.
