Getting creative with driftwood and junk in Haiku Maui.

What do you get when you take some driftwood, corks, and heavy guage wire?  A fun fish to hang on the wall!

A neighbor had a driftwood party and invited a bunch of us over to get creative.  She went to a lot of bother to gather piles of driftwood, and soak it and dry it to get rid of any creepy crawlies.  We were inspired with all the woods, scraps of wires, rocks, shells, and other fun things to put together.  Glue guns, power tools, drills and what not were all available, with experienced helpers to show us how to use them.  It was a fun party, and great way to get neighbors together on a weekend.  Of course food and adult beverages were also in good supply, and the chatter was lively.  Everyone had so much fun being creative and just having a good time.

Check out these other wonderful creations that were made by some of the other guests:

 What a fun time, and I think these neighborhood parties are such a treat!  Thank you Susan and Dean!

Very unique, very creative, and very clever, Georgie. Not quite my "cup of tea" for my own decor, but I can see how it would be for many people.

Aloha, Georgie - fun, interesting and creative.  Definitely a unique neighborhood bonding event.  Great example of reuse - recycle - re-adapt - rethink.

OMG...I love that. I bet you could make a pretty good business out of selling these creations at the local flea market.

What a great idea for a party theme!    After heavy winter storms, some times there is a TON of driftwood on our Santa Cruz Beaches, washed down from all the river tributaries.    I've seen couples working together to drag their haul to their cars.    I made a lovely shell and driftwood mobile once... FUN!

Georgie Hunter R(S) 58089 - ever since I lived in Maine I collected drift wood. I always thought it was nature's beautiful art. I would really enjoy a driftwood party. What a great idea and lots of fun with interesting creations!

What a great way to be creative and also eliminating drift "junk" from water ways. Love it!  There's an artist here in Scottsdale that gathers trash and makes it into art- repurposing old stuff.  Love it!
