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. Iยดve 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 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 ๐Ÿ™‚

    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 ๐Ÿ™‚

        Ok thanks!

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

    • Erlend Erlend

      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
