Driftwood Christmas Tree

I’ve been wanting to make some wreaths with driftwood I’ve collected on the beach.
Now that the holidays are here, I decided to go with a Christmas tree.

Mine is just over 2 feet tall. I’d love to collect some really big pieces and scale it up to full size.

What you’ll need to construct the tree:
About 30 pieces of driftwood
1 dowel, 5/16″ diameter or larger.
1 wood base (mine in 4 1/2″ diameter, purchased at Michael’s for $1.29)
Glue (I used Weldbond, but any wood glue or good white glue should do.)
Drill or dremel tool with a bit the same size as your dowel
Block to drill into
Ruler
Starfish for the top
