    driftwood project help please

    Hi everyone. I have just joined and already looking forward to attempting the craft ideas. Please could you let me know if you know of a website where I can find ideas to make things from driftwood. I have seen the elfin house made by Canary, it is lovely.

    in girl scouts we used the driftwood for the body of wind chimes. the chimes were mis-cut keys. you could make it prettier with broken pieces of stained glass or beads.

    I've read a few books on the subject, but I haven't yet found a site. What exactly do you want to do? I made a sculpture with a piece of a log with a hole in it and added some feathers and an blown egg. The books I've seen have talked about making furniture. I even have some books on bendwood furniture and garden features. If you are interested in making Fairy homes don't you just have to find the right size and shape wood and embelish it or is there something specific that you need to do? Maybe it is less on specifics and more on your imagination. There are books and web sites also that will tell you how attract fairies to the yard. What are your exact interests?
