You don’t need a lot of supplies to make Driftwood Lamps for yourself or as a gift. Just some wire, a macramé ring, a swag lamp kit, and a pile of driftwood. Create simple wire wraps, or make decorative twists and bends to add interest! Additionally, some techniques permanently space the driftwood pieces on the lamp. This wrapping method ensures the wood stays put. It takes about 3 hours to make a light like this.
The next time you’re beachcombing, start collecting supplies for handmade Driftwood Lamps!
Leave the wood natural, use water-based stains, or even whitewash it. Add crystals, beads, shells, and anything else you want to make them truly one-of-a-kind!
