Where Can You Find Driftwood
The best driftwood that I have found has been the beaches. You can find them driftwood in other waterfront areas such as lakes, river and other forms of water outlets. The best time to find drift wood on the beach is after the tide goes out. It leaves pieces of wood along the shore line. Driftwood provides shelter for food for birds, fish and other aquatic species. When I am looking for driftwood I try to keep the size small since it is feeding our aquatic creatures.
If you don’t have access to a beach or lake .You can purchase driftwood on Amazon.

2. Tie the jute around the cross in and out at least three times around to form an X.
3. Make sure the jute is tightly wrapped around both crosses before you glue the seashells on the cross.
4. Glue one of the larger shells on the X and the smaller ones all around.
