Driftwood Jewelry Display {DailyBuzz Style 9×9}

I found a piece of driftwood last summer while I was on a weekend trip to the American river. We walked down a steep hill to get to the river, then walked along big rocks on an adventure upstream. Well, we didn’t get too far on our adventure because let’s be honest, I am a wimp. I am truly pathetic when it comes to any activity that involves possibly getting hurt. When a hill gets too steep, I’d rather sit and slide down than attempt to walk and possibly fall. Let’s just say I don’t quite live on the edge. But, the scary upstream walk was totally worth it once I found this awesome piece of driftwood. I grabbed it and some other smaller pieces of wood and knew I would find some use for it, even though it happened to be a whole year later.

Thanks to my constant blog perusing, I found inspiration for my driftwood project over at lovely indeed a few months ago. Then a few weeks ago, daily buzz style asked for submissions of your best jewelry organizer. This gave me the extra little push I needed to finally work on my project.

And let’s start crafting!

Driftwood Jewelry Display Supplies:

  • Driftwood
  • Rope
  • Nails
  • Screw in hooks
  • Paint
  • Hammer
  • Glue gun

Take your rope and tie it on both ends of your driftwood. Secure the rope by putting a little glue from the glue gun between the wood and rope.

Now paint your nails (not your fingernails silly, the ones you hammer!) I painted mine seafoam green to go with the beachy theme.

Hammer your nails into the wood (or find your nearest handy man to help). I staggered them along the front, but place  them wherever you feel looks best.

Lastly, screw in your hooks along the bottom of the wood. If you are having a hard time screwing them in, hammer a small nail where you want the hooks, take it out, then it should be easier to get the hooks in place.

And that’s it! Easy, right?

I kept mine pretty simple in order to keep the driftwood and jewelry as the center of attention, but painting the wood is a fun option as well.

Next time you are on a thrill seeking adventure upstream, find yourself a piece of driftwood and you can make this jewelry display too!

    Caitlin,

    Very nice idea and it costs you almost nothing. The complentaire color combination of blue and orange appealed to me. Easy to make yourself and you have your beautiful necklaces on a natural rack.
