Lately, I have been a contributing blogger on the FloraCraft® Make It Fun Blog. I am now going to start sharing some of those posts on my own blog. Yay!
This orb has become one of my favorite unique home decor pieces. I am in love with driftwood these days.
Coastal decor is all the rage these days. Unique shells and other items found while strolling down a serene shoreline are some of my favorite things to decorate with.
The worn look of driftwood is a classic way to display rustic beauty with the latest trendy beachy vibe.
Let me show you how to make this simple but beautiful driftwood decorative balls using a small foam ball and driftwood chips.
How to make a DIY Driftwood Orb
- 1 Floracraft® Make It: Fun® Foam Ball: size 1 1/2 inch
- Drift wood pieces or chips
- Low Temp Glue Gun & Glue
Separate the driftwood out on a table by size and length.
Press the wood gently into the foam ball to make an area for the wood to fit snug. Add hot glue to the end of the wood then press it back into the hole you created in the foam.
Hold each piece of wood until the glue is dry.
Continue gluing the longest pieces of driftwood first equally around the foam ball. Fill in empty areas with thick and wide driftwood pieces, continue until you no longer see any foam.
Add small thin driftwood pieces to fill in narrow areas of the foam ball. Display your orb and that’s it! Enjoy!
The Driftwood Orb is sure to be on trend addition to your home and a great conversation piece.
