Whether you have kids at home looking for summer projects or you just love DIY's, we found a great idea for you! This driftwood, airplant wall art is modern, easy to make, and very cool. All you need is a great piece of driftwood, a few airplants, hammer, sawtooth hangers, and nails. Make sure there are at least a couple flat surfaces on your piece of driftwood so it can hang it from the wall. While you're cleaning your piece of driftwood, soak and clean your airplants then set aside and let them dry. Find two flat spots (depending how long your driftwood is) and use small nails to secure the sawtooth hangers. Place a couple larger nails in the wall and hang your driftwood. Since it naturally has curves, you don't have to worry about it looking perfectly straight. Once you hang it, you can carefully place your airplants anywhere you like, making sure to balance them out along the entire piece of driftwood.  The best part about this modern DIY accessory is that it could also be a beautiful memory, depending on where and how you found your driftwood... Like, a romantic stroll on the beach or play day on the beach with the kids!
