Let me just say that I lurve hot glue. This was a delightful experiment in, well, experimenting- and it turned out great! I often come across things that look complex, but I'm like "you know, I bet I could make that with some hot glue" and every once and a while...I am correct. Sweet, Sweet Success.
This project wasn't exactly free for me, since I had to buy the driftwood for $24(that includes shipping) bucks from, from this lovely chap in the UK from Etsy. But you could easily make this using things from your yard/beach/ neighbor's yard.
He even gave me " a wee bit extra!"
Thank you, Phil!
The process was pretty easy. I used all the tallest sticks first and spaced them around the jar (which I already had on hand), and then layered the next tallest, ect... around to create a layered effect.
My conversations throughout the night went a little something like this:
Friend: "What are you up to"
Me: "Just gluing driftwood to an apothacary jar"
Me: " Hey, did you know that vodka, limeade and club soda are DELICIOUS?!"
(seriously, they are. By the way, honey, if you are reading this, we're out of Limeade. )
Pretty pumped about how that turned out.
