What do we mean by driftwood fish KIT?
Your driftwood fish kit consists of just pieces of driftwood for you to place vertically alongside each other onto any backing of your choosing. To be clear, we provide only the driftwood pieces that you will use to make your driftwood fish, but these pieces of driftwood have been sorted and measured so that they will form a fish once you have placed the pieces vertically alongside each other. Besides being able to then get creative with choosing your own backing for your fish, supplying the fish in kit form makes it a smaller and thus cheaper parcel to post. We will email you a photo of what your unique fish will look like once you have placed the driftwood pieces alongside each other. You can refer to that photo when positioning your pieces, or you can even change the position of the pieces around a little for your own unique driftwood fish art.

Driftwood Fish Backing Ideas
What backing to use for your driftwood fish? Of course you can nail, screw, hang, or glue the separate driftwood pieces directly onto an internal wall, door, cupboard door, outside wall or wooden fence if you like, and maybe place a wooden frame or other frame around your fish (or no frame at all), but you may also like to first put your fish onto a backing of some sort, and then position that backing on your internal wall, door, cupboard door, outside wall or wooden fence. If placing your driftwood fish outdoors, we recommend you protect it from the elements by using a wood oil or varnish on the pieces.
- Rough or rustic material – two or more layers of hessian, perhaps, as one example – even tie the individual driftwood pieces on, with sisal perhaps, or something rustic or beachy (maybe fishing nylon) tying behind the material, creating horizontal “stripes” for your fish
- overlapping layers of tree bark
- driftwood “planks” placed directly alongside each other to form a rectangle
- wood offcuts placed together to form a rectangle
- a single rustic piece of wood, left plain, or painted
Or how about NO backing at all for your driftwood fish? – a free-standing driftwood fish!
For a free-standing driftwood fish you would lay down your pieces according to the photo we email you, or as you please, to form your fish, then decide which of the larger pieces should get a hole drilled into it into the middle of the underside of the bottom of it. This piece can then have an iron rod or something similar inserted into the bottom of it, and the other end of the iron rod goes into a base of some sort – a wooden block, for example.
That same driftwood piece also needs a hole through its middle, about half way up its length. An iron rod goes through that hole horizontally (at right angles to the driftwood piece). All the other driftwood pieces also need a hole drilled through their middle, and you thread them onto the iron rod or something similar (depending on the size of the fish, a strong wooden dowel may do the trick, or even a strong piece of driftwood that isn’t too thick to fit through the holes in the driftwood pieces, or a fairly thick and sturdy piece of galvanized wire).
You might also consider simply ordering several driftwood pieces of different lengths and doing whatever fishy or crafty thing you like with them. We sell 5 to 10cm pieces, 10 to 20cm pieces, 20 to 30cm pieces, 30 to 45cm pieces, 45 to 60cm pieces and 60 to 80cm pieces.
