I love this time of year. The weather is finally turning cold and I love getting ready for the Holidays. I enjoy everything about it. Although, I think my favorite part is decorating the house and I have had this project on my mind since last year…
While I was out shopping with some friends, I saw a Driftwood Christmas Tree but it was $65.00. I knew I could make my own version of it for a lot less. Since then I have seen them in the Restoration Hardware Catalog ($79.00-$179.00) and The Home Decorators Collection Catalog ($63.00). So here is my version of the Driftwood Christmas Tree.
My Supply List Includes:
Cardboard Cone Shape (I got mine from Michaels)
Hot glue Gun and Glue Sticks
Artificial Spray Snow
It was pretty much the same process as the Driftwood Wreath which you can find here. Some of the trees I saw, the driftwood was placed horizontally around the tree. For my first tree, I thought placing the driftwood vertically would be easier. So I found similair size pieces and glued them around the base like this…
I continued adding pieces all the way around the base overlapping them as I moved up the tree. I had to break some of the driftwood into smaller pieces just to get the right size. It’s very easy to do and I like how each tree has it’s own character. This is what the tree looked like before I added the spray snow.
This is a picture of it with the spray snow. I am not sure which one I like the best… with or with out the snow?
This was such an easy and inexpensive project that anyone can do.
I hope you enjoyed this quick and easy Driftwood Project.
Until Next Time,
