Hi, I have made a diy artificial bonsai driftwood
The frame is made up of aluminium wires. I twisted them to give proper shape. then I used bondtite wood glue to seal the aluminium. For the wooden texture I used filed wood powder and bondtite glue mixture. It is not complete yet though. Here is the result

Personally I don't like the idea of making diy of natural stuff like rock and driftwood.It reminds me those plastic plants.However i like your efforts and work here

First of all I took 10 pieces of aluminium wire(dont remember the thickness) and twisted them to give it shape. then i coated with bondtite glue and let it dry. next i made a mixture of coarsely sanded wood powder and that glue. Applied it on the wire for that wood like texture. here is the frame.

Yeah you are right! but I dont think it will have cheap look after gluing moss to it. After all driftwood is also 'not alive'
