Driftwood Craft Painted Sand Dollar

Turn pieces of driftwood into trendy beach decor – like this easy sand dollar painting you can hang on the wall or set on a shelf!

We’re fortunate to live right by many beautiful beaches, so it’s fun to find ways to bring a little beach driftwood decor into our homes!  The first project features this humble, little piece of weathered and worn driftwood…

I just love its texture and the cool nail holes. 

As I began this project, I first discovered this sand dollar image on Pinterest:

Using the basic decorative painting methods  I described here, I used the above image as my template guide and modified it slightly.

So, it went from this:

To this…

I wove jute into the holes and tied it at the top to finish it off.

And now, tucked into the corner of my Living Room bookcase, this poor little abandoned piece of driftwood board becomes beach decor!
