Drift Away

Happy Monday, It's pouring buckets here
Just returned from a whirlwind trip to MD to help load My Parents stuff up
Move to NC is almost complete yay!!

Wanted to share a project I have been working on, 
involving a little rusty metal star and a bag of driftwood

I have had this driftwood forever, waiting for an idea to use it for
I had visions of glueing it around a round mirror hmm but that never happened
So when we moved I threw the driftwood into a metal basket on the front porch with some seashells for decoration

I scored a yucky metal star at an Estate Sale and envisioned painting it
and hanging on the front porch, to add some more color
Then I thought of a driftwood star seen on pinterest from Pottery Barn
and I thought ooh I could try that and then just kind of went with it

A little Trial and Error
As I started using Gorilla Glue to glue the pieces eek
what a mess, the pieces kept sliding off and the glue made a mess
Then out came the glue gun and BAM 300 glue sticks and I was finished
Maddie enjoyed helping me fit pieces together it was pretty fun

The driftwood was a find in the craft store back home in Maryland, It was attached to a long string. Hence all of the holes in the pieces
I don't mind thou I like the look of it

I will have to post a picture of it when I finally decide where to hang
it, I have been going back and forth between the front porch or the foyer ugh :/ decisions, decisions
