Inspiration and Ideas

skinny driftwood

Today is going to  “wrap-up” our week of driftwood projects.  Next week we’ll be working on something else!  (You’ll have to come back to find out what!  tee hee…)

As I look for craft fair projects, I approach the inspiration and ideas the same way I do decor.  I study pictures.  I look for images that evoke a “feeling” that I like. Then I analyse what I like about the picture and try to incorporate it somehow.

Pottery Barn catalogues are my “go to” when I need some inspiration.  This sand dollar driftwood project:

was dreamed up after seeing this image in my Pottery Barn catalog:

I also pin web images of ideas onto my Pinterest site.  Here are a few more ideas I’ve “pinned” for driftwood projects:

I thought this would be neat adapted slightly to become place card holders:

What projects have you made out of driftwood?  I would love to hear about them.
