If you are looking for a new material for crafting or your next DIY project, you should definitely checkout driftwood! Here are 25+ driftwood crafts to inspire you.
If you aren’t familiar with it, driftwood is a type of wood that is washed onto shore by the currents and tides of the ocean or other bodies of water. It has a natural weathered look since it has been shaped and colored by the elements.
If you are ready to start a driftwood craft or DIY project, you may be wondering where you can find it — especially if you don’t live near water! You can find or purchase driftwood at the following places:
The Beach If you are lucky enough to be near one, visit your local beaches where you can find driftwood that naturally washes up.
Online You can purchase driftwood from online stores like Amazon, Etsy, and eBay.
Local Stores Check with your local craft stores, home décor shops or pet stores, as they might sell driftwood.
Florists Your local florist may have driftwood that they use in floral arrangements.
Helpful Tip: Remember to check the laws in your area before taking any driftwood from beaches or parks. Some counties, states, and countries have laws that prohibit the removal of driftwood without a permit.
Always keep your crafting legal! 🙂

Here is another driftwood mirror idea. This one is quite different from the sunburst one from earlier. Obviously, the driftwood has been painted, but it is also much more linear and 'orderly' in its arrangement.
This piece of driftwood seems to be floating with three pendant lights going through it. Actually, it is supported by two wires that are hidden behind the pendant light cords! I love how it turned out.
