DIY: Driftwood Jewelry Mobile + a Giveaway

I have been trying my best for the past few years to keep my necklaces from tangling up with one another. It's kinda hard unless you have the right stuff, baby. I recently saw some interesting driftwood pieces on etsy and decided that rather than spending $50 on something, albeit very lovely, that I could make on my own, well, DIY style. The only difficult thing about this DIY was finding the driftwood, and even though I wanted to find the perfect piece wash up on the shores of my dreams, I ended up resorting to finding a seller online. The DIY is fairly easy and you can do pretty much what you want, to achieve the perefect size for your wall!

I started by snagging some driftwood off of Etsy, though you could probably collect your own if you live near the beach or a body of water. I found this to be a quick and affordable option that didn't require me to dry my own wood. The only other things needed were glue. twine and white vinyl mug hooks. You'll want something with a small screw at the end.

It's really as easy as tying your twine around the ends of the drift wood then gluing into place, leaving slack to bring down to another tier of driftwood and twine until you've achieved your desired length and tiers. I went with three, then spread my hooks out as evenly as I could. marking the spot before installing. The driftwood is soft so screwing your hooks in is no problem at all. To add a little something something, I painting some of the driftwood gold to bring the cool level up. You could do anything you want to snaz it up or leave it looking au natural. It's up to you.
