Welcome to the very first episode of HGTV Handmade, the DIY series where we will show you how to create a variety of different projects each week to help customize your room or home. The key to making your house a home is filling it with things you love. This week, I show you how to bring in beautiful elements of nature like driftwood or grapewood, and combine it with handmade or real gems to make a unique sculpture. Customize the look and color palette any way you choose, and you have your own table centerpiece or suspended piece of art.

Check out our very own Meg Allan Cole—and her fun DIY driftwood sculpture video tutorial—on the inaugural episode of HGTV Handmade!
