Create a driftwood fish picture
Turn wave-washed wood into a special one-off piece of framed art
Use a box frame that will be deep enough to display driftwood inside.
Gather lots of short lengths of driftwood, including some slightly curved pieces.
You will need more pieces to play with than you think.
Paint backing board from box frame white.
Lay out your pieces of driftwood to create a fish shape.
The pieces you have collected will dictate the final shape - it can be as abstract as you like.
When you're happy with the arrangement, stick in place using clear multi-purpose glue.
Find a tiny shell for eye and glue on.
