I love my small driftwood wreath . It fits perfectly in the spot I picked out . My husband even liked it and he does not like wreaths of the usual style . Item arrived fast and packaged well . I will definitely be buying more from this seller .

Beautiful cross well made & wrapped very well. I was very excited to see it also has a loop on the back for hanging. Super fast shipping!

All our wreaths are made completely by hand using a round base and driftwood pieces. We start by gluing the first layer of driftwood down. We then secure select pieces with screws to ensure a sturdy base and then glue a few more layers of wood on top!

Two of our travel signs in their new homes :)
We are so excited about this sign we made for a local high school AVID program. They just finished a week of statewide college visits, so we hope this is something special to remember it by! mortar_boardclapskin-tone-3

About

"Live in the sunshine, swim the sea, drink the wild air."

The ocean is what unites us. This simple belief is what fuels our creations. The idea that the piece of driftwood I hold in my hand could have come from you is a very powerful one, only shadowed by the fact that soon what I have created could be in your hands once more. This whole thing started as Christmas presents of family names and addresses in 2011... "Oh wouldn't that be cute?," "What if we did this too?," "Throw in some shells while you're at it..." and it has spiraled into a passion, an obsession. What started as our downtime, our hobby, has become a quest for that funky piece of driftwood that would fit perfect with those letters you're designing from that idea you had last night while you were falling asleep. Hours scouring the beach, hours hunched over still drying wood, gingerly painting in the tiniest detail, hours spent loving every second of creating something that will become someone's cherished possession. We truly love what we do and hope you do too!

All of the wood and rocks we use are handpicked off our home beaches of Oceanside and Carlsbad, California. We also take summer trips to Lake Tahoe and the Truckee River where we find some interesting additions for our collection. The shells come from where we find them--flea markets, garage sales, the attic. Each stroke is painted by hand, each letter glued into place by hand, each piece fitted together like a divine jigsaw puzzle, all in the interest of being one of a kind, unique, particular, and individual, just like you. We are inspired by you!

Hello! We hope you like what you see. We are happy to customize any item you find in our shop, just message us with your idea and we'll discuss :)

Items marked "made to order" are all examples of pieces we have made that we would love to personalize and create from scratch for you! These pieces take a little longer since we are making them from scratch, so please keep that in mind when placing your order.

Accepted payment methods

  • Accepts Etsy gift cards
Shipping
Each individual item has its shipping estimate, and we strive to get things out ahead of their deadlines. If you need something within a specific timeframe, please message us before purchasing to confirm we can meet your needs. The majority of our items are made to order, so shipping can vary. We will always refund any shipping cost that might be left over (for overages of $3 or more), and we always send a tracking number once we ship! If you have questions, please don't hesitate to ask!
Refunds and Exchanges
For regular items (with no customizations), if you simply do not like the item or it wasn't what you expected, we will refund you in full (purchase price + initial shipping) if you pay to send it back. If it arrives broken or damaged, we will work with you to open a claim with the U.S. Postal Service in order to file a claim for the damage.

**There are no refunds of exchanges for custom orders!** We strive to make sure that you will be completely satisfied with your custom order, so we are confident that you will want to keep it! :)
Additional policies and FAQs
Our items are made from things we find at the beach. Driftwood can be old palm fronds, burnt pieces from past bonfires, or just random sticks. We don’t sand, smooth, soak, cut, or otherwise alter the pieces in any way. That means they may have splinters, rusted nails, and sharp edges—we think this adds character. They are perfectly safe to hang on the wall or display, but they are not meant to be handled by young children, and we hold no responsibility as to how you choose to use our art, so please enjoy it safely.
