Our latest DIY wedding project comes from Vicki DeBlasi and Michelle Kelly at wedding events company Pocketful of Dreams. They organise weddings all over the UK and abroad, creating thoughtful, innovative weddings, including styling, decoration, sourcing products and materials and event management. Their driftwood place settings have a relaxed, natural feel to them, plus they'll add colour to austere table cloths. The colour scheme is up to you...

WHAT YOU NEED

Driftwood

Paint sample pots

Coloured wool

Place card labels

HOW TO MAKE

STEP ONE: Paint the driftwood pieces in random patterns or stripes and zig-zag lines. Leave to dry.

STEP TWO: Grab a bunch of the painted driftwood and bundle together using brightly coloured wool, wrapping a few times.

STEP THREE: Add the customised place card label to another piece of wool and secure at the back.
