I think it’s ideal to decorate for the holidays in a way that that’s still true to your personal style. If you live in a beach house or dig coastal decor, I’ve found just the thing for you!
This painted driftwood Christmas tree from Decor8 is the perfect marriage of organic materials and inventive design. The geometric patterns give it a casually-festive feel, and once you get materials from a craft store, it couldn’t be easier to DIY at home. After you paint the wood and let it dry, you can mount it on a board or hang on the wall as is. (Although, perhaps a starfish or sand dollar might be a more appropriate tree-topper, no?)
