I have been enjoying collecting driftwood lately. All of the various shapes and sizes, that have been smoothed out by the water, are fun to look at and admire. Figuring out how to display all that wood can get a little mind boggling though! I actually love the look of the wood on its own, in a basket of some sort or laid out on a shelf or mantel, but there are other ways of decorating with driftwood that are a little more creative.
This collection of ideas will help to inspire you if you want to use your driftwood in a project or really highlight a piece or two in your decorating.

The thing that I like about wall art is that you can do pretty much anything that you want. I love how some of the pieces of driftwood are painted a coastal blue color for more interest. Small pieces of driftwood can be used to form shapes as well. A fish, flower, or heart are just a few ideas of what you could put together for driftwood wall art.
