  11. Kelly says:

    Love it! I’ve seen those before and always loved them. They can be hard to find in a store. I like that you were able to make it with materials you already had on hand! It looks great in your bedroom!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much Kelly! You’re right, these can be hard to find in stores, luckily I had all the materials at my fingertips! 🙂

    I love this mirror!! You did an amazing job on it!! I am totally going to copy you and try to make one. We live in Florida and when we go to the beach I always collect the small (or large) pieces of driftwood. Thanks for the inspiration!!

  19. […] started the month with my Easy Driftwood Mirror. Goodness, I love this […]

    Beautiful mirror. Here is a suggestion since I had a problem with hot glue staying on in the heat: adhere your driftwood with hot glue but back it up with another glue such as E6000 and in the event the mirror is in a hot environment, the wood will not fall off. I made my daughter a shell mirror once and used hot glue and when we returned from vacation many of the shells had fallen off b/c the A/C shut off during an electrical failure. So now, whenever I make something like this I always use two kinds of glue. Hot glue for that quick adhering and a stronger glue that is not affected by heat for durability. Hope this helps. Clare

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Clare! You have a fabulous suggestion! Luckily, I haven’t had any problems yet, but if I do I’ll try it your way! 🙂

  21. I absolutely love the mirror! I am wanting to make one similar to this. Thanks for linking it up to my party. I am featuring it in my next post.


    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very much, Traci! I’m honored to be included in your highlight feature post! 🙂

  22. LOVE this! If only I had access to driftwood… So smart, and so high end! Well done!

    Hi there 🙂

    I found your blog via google and think it’s awesome !
    I live in Auckland, New Zealand and decided to take up crafts (really just an excuse to keep busy whilst my kids are at Preschool) Haha, anywho. I’m currently trying to recreate your driftwood mirror which looks fantastic. Driftwood was easy enough to find at every beach around here and I bought a cheap $10 mirror from the Warehouse (similar to Target). I started hot gluing half of the frame and left it for the night. This morning I went to finish it off and realised that some of the pieces had come off 🙁 Do you have any tips for making them stick better? I was thinking about looking at using Gorilla Glue to double bond the Driftwood but I’m not fully sure if it’s a good idea.

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Ella! I’m so happy you found my blog! Welcome to the WGC! 🙂
      I’m thrilled you are making your own driftwood mirror, but I’m sorry to hear your driftwood pieces have fallen off…. I used my hot hottest hot glue, which gets really hot, and none of my driftwood pieces have moved. Do you have a high or low heat glue gun? If your driftwood pieces are bigger in size, a low heat glue gun might not work. You could try Gorilla Glue, but I would test it on a few pieces before doing the entire mirror.
      I hope that helps! 🙂

  27. TucsonPatty says:

    Shayna – just saw this on Pinterest and I love it. I’ve been searching for the perfect driftwood, but Arizona doesn’t have much running water to make finding it very easy. ; ) I’ve been looking online to purchase, or at hobby/craft stores and am coming up empty. I envy your running river water. Maybe you could collect and sell yours? I’ve seen the most beautiful high end art pieces made of small very smooth pieces and I’m still searching. This is a beautiful project – I hope you are still enjoying it. I’ll be reading your blog here on out!

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so very much! I am definitely still enjoying it! I’m sorry that driftwood is so hard to find… If we ever get to a point where we can sell it, I will let you know!
      So happy to have you as a new reader! Welcome to The WGC! 😀

    This is so incredible! My husband and I are moving into our first home and I’m planning on doing this to our master bath mirrors. Where do you find your driftwood?

    • Shayna says:

      THANK YOU so much, Samantha! Your master bath mirrors will look fabulous! I get my driftwood from my Aunt and Uncle’s ranch. They have river access and it’s all over. 😀

  31. Hi Shayna,

    Quick question…
    How do you clean your drift wood? I am always worried about all the bugs that crawl out of it 🙁

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Sherry! I completely understand what you’re saying! 😀 I always wipe the pieces down really well and vacuum them several times. When I first did the project, I was checking them constant to see if we’d accumulated any new friends. So far so good! Phew!
      I hope that helps! 😀
