A simple thrifty project to add elegance and character to an entranceway (or even a shed door!)

Materials and Equipment:

* Note: This project works best with a wooden door, but if you have a metal door, try the superglue option. Just be sure that the glue you use is able to glue metal to wood.



  • Brush the driftwood clean of sand, or wash the driftwood and set it aside to dry completely.
  • If you currently have a door handle on the door, remove it. Position the driftwood on front of the door until you are happy with its location.
  • Have someone hold the driftwood in position on the front of the door. If there are no holes from the previous door handle, measure the distance to the driftwood from the edge of the door. Re-measure this distance on the back of the door and drill the screws through the door from back to front while the other person holds the driftwood in place. Make sure the driftwood is securely fastened to the door.
  • Alternatively, glue the driftwood to the door with superglue.
  • Enjoy your funky new door handle!
