Our guest bathroom has gone through a lot of changes recently and today I am going to share with you my DIY Driftwood Art.
The last time you saw these twigs they were a part of my Faux Mantle over the holidays. I wasn’t ready to part with them so I kept them in my stash until I noticed a blank wall in the bathroom and decided to create some art.
To make your own DIY Driftwood Art here’s what you’ll need:
- 8-10 twigs of similar size and length
- fishing wire
- clear thumb tacks
Start with 2 thumb tacks and attach fishing line to each tack. You’ll want the fishing line to be slightly longer than the wall space you want to fill.
I found it easiest to double knot the fishing line to the tack and then hammer it to the ceiling.
Hammer each tack to the ceiling, spacing them equally over the wall space you want to cover. (Please disregard my ceiling that hasn’t been cut-in yet. . . and by yet I mean 10 months later.. . . . don’t judge me.)
Start by hanging one twig at a time, tying each twig at the desired height and working your way down until the wall looks ‘full’. I double knotted each twig to each fishing line and were about a week in and nothing has fallen. Don’t worry too much about trying to keep the twigs even or straight, a little overlapping gives it m ore character!
And there you have it, no more boring wall!
Have you ever created art out of another ‘found’ item like twigs?
