I have been collecting driftwood this summer. It's fun to build with!
Here is the beautiful driftwood house, which this young girl built for the little beach elf she made with a little bit of my help with the clothes. The elf is made of a wooden bead glued to a wine cork, with a twist of pipe cleaner for arms. It has a glued hat and a sewn tunic made of wool felt. (Sewing works much better than glue with wool felt, we learned.) The girl drew the elf's face with colored pencils. What a beautiful, seaside driftwood cottage she made for her elf!
