Mark Rayner shows you how to create this simple outdoor table decoration – a perfect centrepiece for a balmy Christmas barbecue.
You will need:
Here's another option: You can use other objects such as pieces of beach glass, paua shells, scoria and glass beads to create a more colourful Christmas tree decoration. Or colour the driftwood itself by staining it with Resene Colorwood or priming with Resene Quick Dry and painting with your favourite Resene testpot colours.
Apply one coat of Resene Terracotta Sealer to the inside and outside of the pot and allow to dry.
Apply two coats of Resene Quarter Biscotti to the outside of the pot, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
Apply two coats of Resene Double Biscotti to the upper rim of the pot, allowing two hours for each coat to dry.
Fix a larger piece of pumice to the top of the driftwood form, as shown. Again, fix with construction glue. Allow construction glue to dry.
Trowel the mortar mix into the painted pot and lightly compact, as shown, with a piece of wood.
