A dappled pebble, an iridescent feather, a solitary acorn—I’m always collecting tiny treasure that I come across in nature. When I found this piece of driftwood on the beach, I knew it would be perfect for a future project. Weathered, worn wood always makes me think of fall.
If you can’t find a suitable piece of driftwood, a sanded scrap of wood would also work well for this project.
To prep the driftwood, rinse off any remaining sand from its surface and let it dry. Lightly sand the driftwood so paint adheres to it.
Outline where gourds and pumpkins will be in pencil. Paint them with gouache and acrylic paint. Draw in fine details with a Sharpie permanent marker. Finally, use super glue to secure a magnet to the driftwood.
Another option is to create an ornament instead of a magnet. Drill a hole into the driftwood and run a ribbon through it to create an ornament.
Here’s to a cozy, creative fall!
