Driftwood star update....

I've decided (after a somewhat harried morning trying to convince a 4 yr old and a 2 year old that aquadhere glue is in fact NOT white paint) that driftwood pieces look much nicer in a bowl instead.....



...and that if one really wants a driftwood star, it is much easier to pop into one's local homewares shop and purchase one.

'Nuff said.

Oh that's funny. Having a 2 & 4 year old I completely get it!! I once turned my back to find my son with white paint socks to his ankles, and foot prints all over a room. Apparently they were the Easter bunnies. A bowl of driftwood is very stylish.x

I LOVE the fact you tried to make some driftwood stars!!! Don't be discouraged, I tried to make a rag wreath yesterday...disaster!!! Some things are just meant to be purchased ;) I love your driftwood, such gorgeous colours and it looks perfect in your bowl ~ Txx

I was SO impressed that you would even put craft glue and kids in the same room!?!?

Last year I purchased some great driftwood 'streamers' [not sure what you'd call them] which we ran down the centre of our very large family Christmas table.

Essentially they're little driftwood twigs [no more than 10cm long] which have had a hole drilled in the middle and then threaded onto a long piece of fishing line.

There's a large curtain ring attached to the end so that they can be hung vertically, but I like ours either horizontal on the table or curled up in a wreath shape with star fish adorning.

Have a squiz at Eclectic Style in Thomas St for similar.

Actually, i really like them in the bowl, they look great. And you know how partial I am to a bit of driftwood or two :) Store bought is sometimes the best option, isn't it, especially with two toddlers in the house. K xx
