You would be amazed with the things you can do with cool looking pieces of wood and rocks. Some pieces of wood you can find, is sooo awesome that it doe sent need altered at all. I keep a lot of them natural. I have seen fences made out of drift wood, were they just entwine the pieces of wood together. It looks really neat, so, later on down the line I am going to make one. I just need to gather up enough pieces to put one together. My cousin made a fence out of big rocks. It looked like hard work and it takes a lot of rocks, A rock gardens good enough for me alto the rock fence looks neat, it's just too much work for this kid!! If you have the time and energy, you can just go for it! I will watch. Makes me tired just thinking about it. I consider that an art formAnother nifty idea is take smaller pieces of drift wood, drill a hole in the middle of each one. Run a string thru them together, tie a knot in one end to make a wind chime. Without the chime of course.it's a simple and free project. It spins around when the wind blows. You can hang it on your porch or in a tree and hey, it will match your drift wood fence, what do you think? simple A lot of times there will be pieces of drift wood with holes or nooks and crannies. In these open spaces , add some potting soil and put chicks and hens(not real ones) chicken of the woods, you know, the plant kind. I see people have those a lot in their flower beds. It looks nice and very simple to do. HOW ABOUT A BIRD HOUSE GOURD= These are simple to make, If you come across a bird house gourd or grow your own, It is kinda neat to make a little bird house out of it. Have made them several times and had birds make their nest in them. Try to keep the stem on them for hanging. What you do is take your dremel rotary tool, Drill a hole about the size of a fifty cent piece(or a little bigger) paint a nice design on it, flowers or whatever you like.put a coat of clear polyurethane to protect it.Tie a string on the stem and hang it in a tree. You will want to put something inside to weigh it down like a little rock. That's to keep it from blowing around in the wind
