I think it would be nice to have a Driftwood Christmas Tree in the yard like this one here in Maine. So pretty in the winter snow.

Karen Miller driftwood Christmas tree
British artist Karen Miller has a collection of driftwood Christmas trees, and people don't seem to be able to get enough of them. It's easy to see why -the trees are darling, beachy, natural, eco-friendly and last forever. And Karen does ship internationally! However I wanted to show you how easy it is to make a Christmas tree with driftwood, and there are two ways of making one.

This illustration from Flickr shows you how to make the tree by drilling holes in all the pieces, then slipping them over a dowel.

driftwood twig trees
Or make a Christmas tree with twig-sized driftwood pieces, using glue only. The instructions for these Trees read: line up four twigs, about a half inch from each other to create a stable base. Layer twigs on top, gluing each layer with hot glue. You will probably want to trim or break the twigs to make them shorter as you build the tree up taller.

I know, I'll be making one of these trees for next Christmas! Update: You'll find my tree listed on 25 Driftwood Christmas Trees! White Space White Space
