Wood You Be Mine? – DIY Driftwood Heart Wreath

Pinterest Hack

I saw these cute driftwood heart wreaths on etsy and thought they would make the perfect project for the month of February.  So, I thought I would try my hand at making one.  Here is how I made my DIY Driftwood Heart Wreath.

Materials List

4 bags of this driftwood
glue gun and glue sticks
rope to make it hang

Step 1, Purchase Driftwood…

I don’t have my own personal collection of driftwood from the beaches where I live (I DO have endless shells), so I had to buy it from Hobby Lobby.  I bought 4 bags.  They were $3.49 each bag (it is even less expensive online).  If you have a collection of driftwood, then use that instead!

Step 2, Cut out a Heart Shape…

I used cardboard and an exacto knife to cut out a heart outline.  I didn’t care that it wasn’t perfect since I would be covering it up with driftwood.  NOTE:  You could, of course, use any shape you like.  Just a plain circle would look great too.  I used a heart because of Valentine’s Day.

Step 3, Start arranging the driftwood…

Before I glued anything to the cardboard I separated the pieces of wood by size into piles.  Then I began to arrange them on the cardboard so I could get a basic idea of how it would look.  Once I was satisfied, I began gluing them to the cardboard.  You do end up rearranging a bit as you glue.  I continued to glue pieces until I liked the way it looked.  Be sure you have a lot of glue sticks on hand because you use a LOT of them.

Step 4, Hang and Enjoy…

I glued a piece of twine rope to the back to hang it up, then put it on our front screen door.  That is it.  Then, hang and enjoy wherever you like.
