Driftwood Starfish

Good morning! Well, this will probably be my last summer post this year. Crazy, right? It’s hard to think about fall when it’s still over 100 degrees outside!

I found this cute idea over at The Wicker House.  Thanks Emily! Great craft!

I thought I would give it a try with some of the driftwood I picked up when we went to the beach. I found some slim pieces that weren’t too long and some small chunks of wood to add to the back. I already had the twine.

I started with the long pieces that I wanted to go together and a piece that would work for the middle.

I used hot glue to attach all the pieces together.

I then glued the end of the twine to the back of the piece of wood to secure it and then started wrapping it around all the long pieces.

I continued wrapping until everything seemed secure and then added a little more hot glue on the back to finish it off.

Such a simple project, but looks so cute!

These starfish give the perfect finishing touch to any coastal vignette.

I wrapped this one with string instead of twine and it looks great too.

I love the little extra touch these starfish bring to my home.

Are you ready for fall or are you still hanging on to summer?
