How to make wall art from driftwood:
Start by drawing a rough fish shape onto the plaque with a pencil. This does not have to be perfect!
Use a scroll saw to cut out your fish shape.
Then add a sawtooth hanger to the back of your fish. It is best to add this now instead of when your project is finished.
Start filling in the fish shape with driftwood. Play around with the pieces like a puzzle and just dry fit them onto the cut plaque. You can cut any pieces with the saw to make them fit.
Then use hot glue to secure each piece of driftwood to the fish shape. You can try an industrial strength glue if you would like. I found that hot glue worked perfectly in my case.
I love the rustic feel of this driftwood wall art. It is the perfect way to bring a bit of the beach indoors.
