Driftwood Chandeliers

Driftwood is one of my favorite things.  I'm always drawn to it in home decor and when I see it out and about.  So when I came across these strands of driftwood on clearance at T.J. Maxx, I scooped them up.  They were a great price and I knew I could probably figure out something fun to do with them.


I was searching the web for inspiration and came across this DIY chandelier.  I was smitten.  I think it's absolutely gorgeous and would make such a great statement.

 I would love to do something similar, but I think my pieces of driftwood are a little too large.  I'm still thinking I might do some sort of light fixture, maybe for our breakfast nook?

I'll keep you posted on what I come up with!  If you've seen any inspiring projects with driftwood I'm all ears!

My parents are collecting to make a driftwood Christmas tree this year. So neat! So many ways to use it!

I'm drawn to it like you Bethany and have a couple of pieces in my home (like a huge mirror from West Elm), A DIY would be perfect way to go since the imperfections of driftwood do hide 'mistakes' easier. I think though, a ball driftwood chandelier would be easier, Im thinking 2 wired hanging pots as base and adding driftwood as you go along- I think it might just work. Good luck!

SO cool and different. I know you will make something stunning

What if you did a more modern rectangle ones like they do with capiz? Although I guess modern might be hard to do with driftwood lol - great idea of how to use it!

Love this idea!

I thought about doing something similar, but in a circular shape. Rectangular would be really cool though, great idea!

Thanks Julia! I hope it turns out how I have envisioned it.

That's a great idea Vel! I thought about doing a ball shaped one, but didn't think about using the planters that way. I think that might work really well. Thank you!!

Bethany DeVore said...

wow, that will be so cool!

Bethany DeVore said...

I love it too!

Bethany DeVore said...

Thanks Beth! I was instantly drawn to it when I saw it. I hope I can make it work!

The Restoration Hardware driftwood light would be a great inspiration for this! Good luck!

Love the chandelier idea! A few weeks ago, I scored a whole box of driftwood for 25 cents at a garage sale! I'm sure the seller just picked them up off the side of the river and thought I was crazy for buying them - but I can't wait to add them to cute little succulent & grass pots!
