This project all began when I was shopping at Big Lots for a few little odds & ends to complete the dining room decor. I found the cutest piece made out of worn wood strung together to look like a fish. It was simple and I knew it would make a great statement to go along with my ocean themed dining room. Being that it was so simple looking I thought to myself, why spend money on something I could just make myself? I knew it would have more value to me if I did make it myself, and hell I do LOVE a good ol' art project! So this is where the fun really begins.
I knew I wanted to use authentic pieces of drift wood to create my little fish, and so the last time I got a chance to go to Stinison Beach I went driftwood huntin', and of course found plenty of good little pieces. Once I had my driftwood, I headed to Michael's to pick up some twine. Found a roll of twine for $6 bucks, which was the only expense needed for this entire project. I also have a ton of it left over..art projects waiting to happen! ;)
I sure did have a good ol' time with this art project and definitely plan on making some more of these guys in the future for friends and maybe more for myself, hehe. Just goes to show you, home decor is always more fun when you're making it yourself! :)
Live + Love Art!
