Decorate your home with your very own homemade orb made from driftwood gathered from the beach.
Read my Summer 2017 Issue:
8-inch inflatable ball or beach ball
about 75 driftwood pieces, 3–5 inches each (You may need to trim wood to smaller sizes using a saw.)
hot glue gun
plenty of glue sticks
- Inflate the ball. Place the ball in the bowl to keep everything stable while you work.
- Starting at the top of the ball, glue driftwood pieces together (not to the ball) to form a basic lattice pattern around the ball.
- Continue to glue additional pieces of driftwood in and across the gaps until the ball is encased in a driftwood frame.
- When the glue is dry, deflate the ball and carefully slip it through one of the gaps to remove.
