Hello friends. I hope your week is off to a great start.
I’m excited about this project because it’s something I’ve been wanting to create for years.
So when Shauna asked me to be part of The One Item Project Challenge and told me that first item was going to be twigs,
I knew it was the perfect opportunity to create it.
I know she said twigs and I used driftwood but driftwood is technically twigs sanded down by the ocean, so it counts right?
To be honest, I had no clue how I was going to make it. The hardest part was to create the inner frame to hold the driftwood, but once I figured that out, the rest was a piece of cake. It just took some patience in trying to fit the pieces together as well as a lot of hot glue gun burns in the process.
But all well worth it.
We are fortunate enough to live close to the water where we can hunt for driftwood and I found the perfect pieces for the antlers. But you could recreate this piece with twigs as well.
I’m not sure if anyone would be interested in a tutorial, but if you are, I took some photos as I went along.
I’m pretty smitten with him and it just seemed appropriate to dress him in a pretty little plaid scarf.
I can’t wait to incorporate this guy in our Christmas decor this year.
Here are the rest of the projects created by some of my friends using twigs.
