Driftwoods are always a material that I love to have in my home, because I consider amazing how the salty water and the sea waves can transform a piece of wood in something so beautiful! And to be honest, they remind me Summer and my island! This year we had the chance with the kids to collect many of them, in different shapes and lengths, so when we came back to our home, it was the great opportunity to use them. What we did? something easy and full of colors and we really enjoyed it! Hand Painted Driftwoods that we used them as a planter for our Air plant of course!
Materials to use for Hand Painted Tribal Driftwoods Planter:
– Acrylic Paint
– Hot Glue
– Paint Brush
– Espresso Cup
Let’s start with the funny part! Colors everywhere! Just start drawing schemas and lines and dots and allow your imagination to create something without a pattern! Kids are actually great artists and they will create small masterpieces!
After you done, let them dry. You can keep them as they are, but if you want to protect the colors, just use a Sand Fixative Spray, like I did in my Rotated Servce Disk.
Of course you can keep them as they are and decorate them in a bowl or hang them on the wall. But for me, I wanted them to be the small raft for my Tillandsia Ιonantha , so hot glue and glue them together.
An espresso cup actually is once more the perfect way to have your air plant on the driftwoods. Actually, these cups have become one of my favorite recycled material lately!
And my cute colored raft for my air plant is ready!!! I have put it next to the Woodland Air Planter I have done and actually they are quite a great company together! I think I will share with you a photo with my beloved corner with my air plants… you know with my Air Ballon and the WaterColor Bowl and …. oh I will tell you more in another post!
Driftwoods are a material that you can definatelly can use in many crafts. And I am planning also to make more for me and my home. Actually, my kids loved so much painting them, that I definatelly have to repeat this craft again!
So, do you have driftwoods in your home???
