As you all know, we love decorating for the holidays in a coastal style! I’m so excited to be sharing my little handmade ornament with you today, I shared it the other week over at Jenn’s blog, Clean and Scentisble, as part of her Trim the Tree Party! I made a driftwood sailboat ornament:
We’re always walking the beaches search for treasures and we LOVE finding driftwood.
You should see my basement, it is filled with furniture to be painted and driftwood!
How to Make a Driftwood Sailboat Ornament
Materials:– Driftwood (or twigs) – Drill -Titebond Wood Glue – Nautical Charts (or other paper) – Scissors – Twine – Glue Gun – Hot Glue – Wax Paper
– Drill holes into the base (which will become the boat), you want to make it big enough to fit another stick (which will become the mast).
Dab a little Titebond in the holes.
Tie twine to the top of the mast. This will become your hanger. Make sure you have enough so it will fit over your branch.
Cut nautical charts into triangles to look like sails. Glue on with hot glue!
Best part is they’re quick to dry so you can get them up on your tree.
If you like this, you might also like my nautical garland I shared the other week. Here’s a few more images of the boats. They’d also be cute on gifts!
