From the blogger: "Driftwoods are always a material that I love to have in my home, because I consider amazing how the salty water and the sea waves can transform a piece of wood in something so beautiful! And to be honest, they remind me Summer and my island! This year we had the chance with the kids to collect many of them, in different shapes and lengths, so when we came back to our home, it was the great opportunity to use them. What did we do? Something easy and full of color; and, we really enjoyed it! We made hand painted driftwoods and used them as a planter!"

DIY Project Instructions

Instructions From the Blogger

  1. Let's start with the funny part! Colors everywhere! Just start drawing schemas and lines and dots and allow your imagination to create something without a pattern! Kids are actually great artists and they will create small masterpieces!

  2. After you done, let them dry. You can keep them as they are, but if you want to protect the colors, just use a Sand Fixative Spray

  3. Of course you can keep them as they are and decorate them in a bowl, or hang them on the wall. But for me, I wanted them to be the small raft for my Tillandsia Ιonantha, so I took hot glue and glued them together.

This is such a beautiful idea! I love how unique and creative it is and how it would add kind of a boho look to the room.
