It has been so hot and humid here in Southwest Virginia the past few weeks. The weather people keep saying “it’s not going to be so humid tomorrow”, but I’m pretty sure they know they’re lying.

Every day for the past few weeks it has been in the 90s and some days it has felt like triple digits. So even if it’s “not so humid” it’s still pretty darn hot!

And that heat makes me want to be lazy and lay on the couch watching Hallmark Christmas movies. (Which, by the way, I have been doing almost every night! #noshame)

However, those Christmas movies haven’t kept me from making beach-themed decor for my home! Just like this quick and easy driftwood candle DIY, which is made using only 2 supplies from Dollar Tree!

What you need:

  • Candle (2.8 inches tall)
  • Driftwood pieces
  • Jute string
  • Hot glue

Our local Dollar Tree had a bag of driftwood pieces last year. I haven’t been in there this summer since all the pandemic stuff started so I’m not sure if they still have them or not. They were in a small bag and almost as tall as the candle.

What you do:

This is so simple you’ll wonder why you hadn’t made one sooner! I swear it took me about 15 minutes to make this driftwood candle.

Basically all you do for this driftwood candle DIY is line your driftwood pieces up around the candle and hot glue them on.

After all of the pieces are glued to the candle, wrap a piece of jute twine around the entire thing, and tie in a bow in the front.

I told you it was super simple!

And it looks so beachy!
