Illuminated driftwood centerpiece-1

I just returned from the beach where it was all seashell accents, palm prints and driftwood decor. I’m back home now, but can’t let the summer end just because vacation is over. To keep the dreamy summer look coming, here are some of my favorite driftwood projects.

illuminated driftwood centerpiece

I’ve done a few driftwood projects in the past, and in yesterday’s video for HGTV Handmade, I show you how to make an easy illuminated driftwood centerpiece for your summer entertaining. Add some shells and a Mexican blanket as a tablecloth, and you have a whole tablescape that brings bohemian summer vibes to the party.

Driftwood is really such an easy material to work with, and can easily be hung on the wall. In this video on my channel, Meg Allan Cole Crafts, or MACC, I created a simple summer driftwood wall garden using air plants.

Taking driftwood on the wall to the next level, on HGTV Handmade, I created a whole wall installation using driftwood. These would also make a sweet mobile for a baby’s room.

  1. And yes, this rumor appears to be true. Chanel has been known to burn leftover goods at the end of a season. In an attempt to outrun counterfeiters who make millions each year producing fake designer bags, Chanel has burned leftover stock so that no part of its brand is left to easily duplicate. Coco Chanel herself is believed to have initiated the first conflagration. In addition, disposing of leftover stock this way helps to preserve the upper class nature of the brand (only a few can afford it, as opposed to deep discounted sale items winding up on the arms of middle class soccer moms). In addition, the idea of a Chanel bonfire only adds to the mystic of Coco and her brand.
