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.

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.

DIY dreamcatcher doily (1).jpg

One of my favorite things I've inherited from both Rubin's late grandmother and mine are beautiful hand made doilies like this one. I'm not really stoked on putting them on armrests so I am always looking for ways to display and appreciate them. I have a few ideas, here is one..

I took a stroll in the park and collected these twigs.

First tie the sticks together to make a large loop.

Make sure the loop is larger than the doily.

Tie one scallop of the doily to the loop.

Then tie the opposite scallop. Work all the way around, alternating opposite sides. This will keep it circular.

Done!

Then wrap the feathers in thread and attach.
