Driftwood Crafts for a rustic beachy theme decor

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.

Driftwood is really versatile so it is often used in crafting, building furniture and home décor. You may have also seen it used as a natural way to decorate aquariums and terrariums.

Where can you get driftwood?

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:

  1. The Beach
    If you are lucky enough to be near one, visit your local beaches where you can find driftwood that naturally washes up.
  2. Online
    You can purchase driftwood from online stores like Amazon, Etsy, and eBay.
  3. Local Stores
    Check with your local craft stores, home décor shops or pet stores, as they might sell driftwood.
  4. Florists
    Your local florist may have driftwood that they use in floral arrangements.
  5. Make Your Own
    Find out how to make driftwood at home. It takes some time, but it turns out great.

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! 🙂
