Driftwood Craft – How to Make Noughts and Crosses
You will need:
4 driftwood sticks
10 pebbles, roughly the same size
Acrylic paint in brown and black
- Lay your sticks out to form a grid
- Bind them together with string, knot them underneath and trim
- Paint five of your pebbles with noughts and five with crosses (pencil mark them first if you’re a wobbly freehander)
- Let them dry
Wouldn’t it make a fabulous Father’s Day gift?
Alternatives: You could paint starfish on one set of pebbles and octopuses on the other or pirate gold and parrots or mermaids and fish – or anything you fancy! You could, of course, use shells for one set instead of pebbles – oh the possibilities!
Now, what shall we make with this piece?!
