DIY Driftwood Christmas tree
Seems like Christmas sneaks up on me fast every year. Pennsylvania has been so warm this fall , So with the warm weather it kind of makes you forget that Christmas is coming.
Every year my wife and I do some type of Christmas crafts. This year for my project I decided to tackle a Driftwood Christmas tree. What's cool about this project the family can be involved. Since we don't have a beach to collect Driftwood here in Pennsylvania the family and I set out to the Susquehanna River to collect some driftwood. I had my youngest daughter on Pinecone Duty. Collecting driftwood is time consuming but fun. when collecting the Driftwood make sure you choose the widest pieces, because you have to make sure there's enough area to drill through. I also think it's best too lay your driftwood out where you're collecting. That way you get a general idea how many pieces you will need. Don't forget to collect extra just in case some of your pieces break when drilling.
When your tree is completed you and your family can decorate it with anything you like. I choose real pinecones and brown twine to hang them with. I really like the natural look. You can also use old Christmas decorations . I let my tree with $3 battery operated LED lights that I picked up from a local retailer.
I think you will have a great time making this project.
