If there’s anything I love more than florals for spring, it’s decorating the house with eco-friendly decor accents that bring the summer vibes in. Because as much as I’d love to relax by the beach all day and watch the waves crash into shore, the return to the metropolis is inevitable, and all I can do is daydream about sunny days in the sand. But no matter how far you live from the beach, there are still ways to recreate that perfect summer getaway at home. So bring home that driftwood and get crafty!
To give you that summer inspiration, I’m rounding up beautiful eco-friendly driftwood DIY decor so you can enjoy coastal living at home.
Industrial Driftwood Shelf
There’s no better way to display your gorgeous collection of shells and corals than on a hanging driftwood shelf with nautical touches.
Made by Sustain My Craft Habit with ropes and pieces of driftwood, this hanging shelf brings a rustic charm to the room and complements vibrant greens perfectly. Throw in some seashells and set sail with your rope ladder-inspired shelf.
Dainty Driftwood Plant Holders
Bring home the island vibe with dainty driftwood plant holders that double as charming wall decor.
Unlike regular planters, this driftwood wall accent from Etsy store Falcon and Finch holds air plants with a coiled wire giving the impression of fresh branches found in the tropics. Mix it up with other ocean-inspired decor and you’ll always be reminded of your island adventures.
If anything, the beach is the perfect place to enjoy light reading. Cool breeze, gentle crashing of waves, and a book you can’t put down make for a relaxing afternoon.
If you can’t bear to take your books to the beach, take a fragment of the beach to your books. These natural driftwood bookends from Folksy not only hold your books in place, they also transform your space into a beach-inspired hideaway.
Natural Fruit Bowl
Invoke the tropical paradise by displaying your fresh produce on a natural fruit bowl for the summer.
Give your fruits a newly-harvested look with a bowl made out of driftwood for that refreshing seaside feel. With this as your dining table centerpiece, friends and family won’t be able to resist fresh fruits on display.
Easy Driftwood Bathroom Mirror
For a subtle way to incorporate nautical accents to your space, create your own driftwood mirror frame and place it by the mantelpiece or living room shelves.
Sail through the warmer months with a round driftwood mirror reminiscent of ship portholes to get as much light in. The natural look of the mirror lends a serene mood to living room, great for afternoons in.
Next time you’re on the beach, consider picking up some driftwood pieces washed up on sand for your next decor project. And let us know which one you’re looking forward to DIY in the comments below.
