Wood You Be Mine? – DIY Driftwood Heart Wreath
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.

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.
What a fab idea and so easy to make too!
Thanks so much for joining in with #MMBC. Have a great weekend! 🙂
Thanks! I am so glad you like it!
You could fancy it up, by using metallic paint and glue clear glass stones on it too!👍🏼
Yes! Good idea. I have seen some with pretty seaglass attached too. I love that!
