rustic driftwood wreath

I am still here at the Oregon Coast and still challenging myself to create with the materials I have on hand! After I created my driftwood city tutorial I had a big pile of driftwood left over and I wanted to create a simple, rustic wreath from all the little pieces. I'm sure its pretty obvious by now that I LOVE making unique wreaths- they are the perfect little object to make with what you have on hand! This project (as simple as it looks) actually took me FOREVER to figure out- but I was finally able to make a wreath that worked!

I started by picking out pieces of wood that would fit together in the shape of a circle. If you don't live near driftwood- this project could also utilize tree branches, chunks of bark, dried grapevine, scraps of small wood, etc.

I began stacking the pieces and formed the shape of a wreath.
I used hot glue to get my pieces "tacked" down and went back with all purpose craft glue to secure everything permanently. (you could use wood glue or even stronger glue if you want to hang your wreath outdoors)

I layered more and more pieces of wood on top of each other- fitting corners and edges tightly into spaces.

And added even more layers until I was happy with the thickness and shape of the wreath.

Use the wreath to hang on the wall,

or use it as part of beach themed decor,

or even as a center piece!

I love this project! It is a small, simple and rustic reminder of my love of the outdoors and the Oregon Coast and I cannot wait to add it to my wall of wreaths!

Hello Alisa, I came from, where I found the link to your blog. The discovery of your creative work inspired me to write a post about what you do (in Italian).
To illustrate your work, I used a couple of your pictures, I hope that you do not mind?
Best regards and compliments,

This must be one of the very few wreaths I would actually love to have in my house. Simple, yet stunning. Gotta go and hug a tree :)

Dear Alisa

Having just spent more then ten hours at the beach collecting all sorts of things, I am grateful for this tutorial, which I only discovered through Sondra and her blog making mention of your work.

Now I wish I had collected more driftwood as the pieces I have are meant for my stone wrapping projects.

What I find interesting is that your driftwood pieces are all silver-grey while the ones I brought back are all blond.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend,
