{31 Days of Coastal Style} 5 DIY Driftwood Projects

If you were inspired by yesterday's "Embarrassingly Easy DIY Driftwood Sign Tutorial," here are five more driftwood projects to REALLY get your crafty wheels turning! (Remember how I told you yesterday that the number "five" seems to be a reoccurring number for us? Well, here it is again!)

Mrs. "Creative in Chicago" shares a genius tutorial on making a beautiful driftwood orb! (You'll have to see what she uses!)

The lovely and creative Jen from City Farmhouse shows how she made a stunning starburst mirror from driftwood-- for the amazing price of $3.00!

"Creative in Chicago" also shows you how to make a gorgeous, ginormous seahorse wall-hanging from collected pieces of driftwood! (You could also make it with twigs in a pinch, if you can't find driftwood where you live...)

The talented Jennifer Rizzo made not one, but THREE driftwood signs, all from wood that survived Hurricane Sandy!

Last but not least, Shayna of The Wood Grain Cottage(I just LOVE her blog!) gives this tutorial for a huge but easy driftwood mirror, which I love especially because it happens to resemble the one from my coastal entryway inspiration!

So there you are-- 5 more gorgeous driftwood projects! Can you tell I love driftwood? ;)

P.S. If you don't leave near a beach or lake, did you know you can buy driftwood by the lot on eBay? Granted, it's not free, but it's better than no driftwood at all! ;)
