Looking out of the study window all I see is our boring blank walled garden shed
It needed something interesting on it for me to look at

I had a collection of driftwood picked up from my many walks on the beach.
So below is what was made

Three driftwood hangers
All you need is some wire and a collection of driftwood

Drill some holes through each end of the driftwood and wrap your wire around it

I love the texture of driftwood

Just keep adding your pieces of driftwood and you have a fun beach theme hanger

Very clever Alison!
I think they'd be beautiful inside too, Love them

p.s. Not sure yet where Tony will work, Beechworth's more a side line, see how it goes, few others a bit closer in the pipeline

Hi Alison,
Just found your lovely blog via Katrina @ A Very Fine House, and don't know how I've missed it all this time! Love your clever use of driftwood, but how could I not - considering my blog name! Looking forward to having a good read through all the goodies I've obviously been missing out on! K xx said...

I have been wanting to make a driftwood mobile for so long. These look great.

It looks great Alison and certainly cheered up the shed wall. Think I know what I'll do now with the bucketloads of driftwood the kids collect.

What a fantastic idea Alison. My dad used to make driftwood assemblages and collages when I was a little girl. I haven't thought about them for decades.

Hope you're having a lovely week.
