we live about fifteen minutes away from the ocean, so any time we are feeling antsy for the sea, we pack up our car and head down the road. we love spending days there, and showing gus the sea was one of my very first dreams i had for him.
while my boys nap, i usually walk along the sand trying to find driftwood ~ and this is where this little garland was inspired from.
driftwood (or sturdy sticks)
line up your driftwood in descending order, starting with the largest piece on top. cut two snippets of string, making sure it's the length of your choice.
starting from the top piece of wood on one side, start wrapping and knotting the string, making sure it is secure. double-knot each wrap. you should end on the bottom, with the excess of string remaining. make sure to snip off any extra string on the very bottom. repeat on other side.
next, hang your driftwood garland. make sure everything is secure and attach to your wall however you like. i made two loops and attached them with two white tacks to match our walls. then, insert your eucalyptus into the driftwood through the slack in the string. if you do not have any slack, don't worry. just delicately lay the eucalyptus on the wood.
