DIY Driftwood Photo Display

By the South Coast of Norway, where I live, there is a lot of driftwood to be found along the shore. One thing you can make of driftwood is decorations. I´ve used three wooden sticks, drilled two holes in each of them and used twine with knots to hold it all together. I also found some tiny clothespins for the photos.

    Gorgeous! Just found this through Pinterest. Am just wondering what the top looks like? Is it just the twine knotted? Ta!

    • Erlend

      Hi Erin – no knot at the top, Since I’ve used one string only, half of it goes on the right side, half on the left side and I get a loop above the top stick :-)

    Hi! I love this and I have collected the driftwood to make this. I have a question, though, do you laminate your pictures so they don’t start to curl up? Thanks! Sue

    • Erlend

      Erlend

      I did not laminate the pictures, whether you’ll get curled photos depends on the humidity I guess. I would recommend printing the photos out on photo paper instead of plain paper :-)

        Ok thanks!

  13. Hey, my name is Laura and I have started blogging about tips for displaying printed Instagram photos. I have been doing lots of looking around to find unique ideas and I just wanted to let you know I love this idea! I love seeing the crafty ideas that people create to display their photos! Thank you for the inspiration and thank you for sharing. I would love to blog about this idea – and link back to you!

  14. I love this. Very contemporary. My son and I collect beach bits on our walks that I could use.

      Me too. I always bring home stuff when we’re walking by the shore, you never know what you’ll find!

    Are the pictures just held on by the clothespins? No glue or anything? Super great DIY idea.. love it
