Driftwood Starfish

 I made these Driftwood Starfish out of some driftwood I had collected on my last trip to the beach.
So today I thought I'd share how to make them.

Step 1.  Go to the beach and gather up some driftwood. . . I know that probably sounds easier then it really is, right? Unless you just happen to live near a beach, and in that case I'm super jealous of you.

So for the rest of you, like me. who only dream of living by the sea,  just remember to gather up more then your share of driftwood on your next beach vacation to have on hand for projects like these. . .  that's what I do.

Step 2.  Lay out 5 pieces that are the same length and form a star.

 Oh and you will also need to find a piece of driftwood that is small and round to act as the center base.

Step 3.  Hot glue the driftwood sticks to the center base and wherever the sticks touch each other.  I used a lot of glue to get it to hold well together.

Step 4.  Wrap a bit of twine around the center, and tie together.  This will help to secure it better and hide any glue that may be showing as well as give it a nice finished look. It will also give you an easy way to hang it on a wall.

 Super Simple!

 I have hung mine up in my boy's bathroom.
I shall share that with you someday soon.
