Supplies needed to make this starfish craft:
Some links below may be affiliate links which means that you do not pay anymore.
- Driftwood (if you don’t have any from the beach you can buy some here)
- Wood panel with recessed back (I used the 8×8 version)
- Hot glue and glue gun
- White craft paint
- Gray craft paint
Start by painting the wood panel. I used a dark grey on the very back and white for the sides as shown below. Remember that most of this will be covered by the driftwood so I was not too concerned about my paint lines.
Allow that to dry completely. Use a saw to cut you drift wood to the same size as your recessed opening. I love my Rockwell Bladerunner for projects like this one. This is like a puzzle. Fit the pieces together until you like the look. Remember the gray paint on the back will be all that is shown through any gaps.
Use hot glue to secure the pieces of driftwood to the inside of your wood panel. Then use hot glue to add the starfish to the outside. Your starfish craft is complete and ready for hanging.
