I need ten of these to properly organize my jewelry.

Start by burning your design into your driftwood. Straight lines and spots seem to be the easiest. Do I have to warn you to be super careful? Soldering irons are terrifyingly hot y'all. 


Not too bad.


Practice makes perfect!


When you have a design you like, mark the bottom with dots one inch apart.


Drill little holes where you marked.


Then dab a little glue on your hooks and screw them into the wood.


Use both drill bits to pre-drill holes with sinkholes for your screws or nails.


Screw or nail into the wall and that's it! Get organized!

☩DIY☩ Faux-Bullet Shell Crystal Necklace

Things you need for this DIY:

✝ small crystals, find some here or here or if you are in the Los Angeles area visit Spellbound Sky

✝ large cord caps, find some here or here or at your local bead store

✝ glue

✝ cord, I used faux suede

✝ jump rings


Total time:

15 mins


Crystal bullet shell necklaces are all the rage but to make them, you have to cut, file and drill the bullet shell. Who wants to do all that? Get the look without the work!

Pick a few nice-looking crystals that fit inside of your cord caps.


Carefully glue each one into a cord cap.

When your glue has dried, attach your jump rings and string your baubles onto your cord.


Tie a little knot around each jump ring to keep everything in place. 


That's it! So easy and quick. Wear it as a necklace or a bracelet. Try using different color crystals and make sure you make extras for your friends! 

☩DIY☩ Sparkly Tube Necklace

Things you need for this DIY:

✝ rubber tubing (from the hardware store)

✝ cord caps that fit on the end of the tubing

✝ glue

✝ sparkly filler (I used copper leaf and silver beads)


Total time:

30 mins


I changed my hair a bit...

I started by tearing my copper leaf into tiny pieces. 


Cut the tubing to your desired length. Glue one of your cord caps to the end of your tube so your filler doesn't fall out.


Start filling...

When your tube is filled, glue on your second cord cap and attach a clasp. That's it!
