DIY Driftwood Heart Wreath

Here is another easy and inexpensive Valentine's Day project. All I used for this project was some driftwood pieces, cardboard, hot glue and twine.
The first thing I did was cut a heart shape from the cardboard.
Then, I used the hot glue and started gluing the driftwood pieces all over the heart. I wanted it to look rustic so I didn't follow a pattern or anything, I just started gluing and layering the driftwood where it would fit.
When I had it all done, I hot glued some twine to the back of the wreath to hang it.
It is the perfect Valentine's decoration for us. It is rustic and something I can use all year round! See more details on my blog post.

    Really cute! Just curious where you found the driftwood pieces? Are those collected or purchased?

      Driftwood is available on line but if you have any lake or river near you you may find pieces on the shore. If you pick up small pieces from the woods soak it overnight in a 10% bleach solution to kill any small insects.

      Once you start collecting wood you will find many ways to decorate with it. I pick it up all the time, soak it, then stack it in the sun to weather and use when I have a project.

      Thank you, Lindsey, for a great idea!

    no way I can get driftwood, how about wine corks cut in half?
