|A bit of the cabin for Christmas in town.|
But other times, driftwood has a different message. Stumps beg to become floating planters. Medium sized gnarly pieces ask to come aboard to decorate our deck. Smaller piece often have a unique message of their own.
This piece of driftwood told me it wanted to become a Christmas decoration we could bring out each year to celebrate the holiday.
I must be honest, I'd just seen an article in the Peak advertising a local crafter's wares at Artique, the local artist cooperative shop. When I saw this piece of wood float by, I knew what it would become.
All it took was some acrylic paint, yarn to make a ball for the top of Santa's hat, and two nails and a piece of yarn on the back for a hanger. The driftwood shape was perfect just the way it was for the task.
I enjoy using handmade decorations for the season, and my driftwood Santa wall hanging fits right in.
