I had a found piece of driftwood that wasn’t being used so I searched for new projects. I came across adorable driftwood sailboats. All you need is a small piece of driftwood, a wooden dowel (or stick) and fabric. Since I am displaying my sailboat outdoors, I bought a small piece of outdoor fabric. Now is a great time to buy heavier outdoor prints. I found this one for 50% off!
My piece of driftwood had a natural opening in the middle of it. I was able to push my dowel down into it to make a proper fit. You may need a drill depending on the size and shape of your wood. Once the hole was made, I hot glued my dowel down into the hole.
I cut a small square of fabric, approximately 7 inches across, and folded it in half to make a triangle. I glued the edges of the triangle, leaving one edge open. Then I glued one side of my last fabric opening and secured it around the top of my dowel. I followed with the other end and let dry.
It’s a simple design, but a charming little piece of Summer decor for our deck.
