Driftwood boats

The beach has to be my every day place. 

My moods are as diverse as the ocean when I’m there. It can be a happy place or my place of solitude so it was only natural that we have a beach wedding and add a part of the ocean in our planning.

I wanted to originally  use the boats as name place markers with our guests names on them but have since decided to rather use them as decor on one of the walls.

Collecting the drift wood is the biggest challenge here.

Once you have your drift wood , drill a little hole and glue your dowel in place.

Cut a large triangle from cloth.

Start at one side and a fix string. Fold the triangle round the dowEl and stitch up with string. When you get to the top twirl string round and pull down to tie at other end of the driftwood.

Glue a piece of ribbon as a flag to the top.
