I am one of those people that when traveling, likes to pick up a cool rock or piece of driftwood to being home as a momento of my trip. Over the years I have gathered an extensive rock collection and have many baskets of he coolest pieces of drift wood.
And I am also a lady that likes to wear a necklace, except I am very much not into metals (gold, silver) or anything fancy. Up until about a year ago I had a smooth piece of amber about the size of an apricot that the mr. got me a long time ago, but sadly that broke and I have been on the hunt for something pretty and something special to make my new necklace.
A couple weeks ago, I was playing with the rocks and driftwood ( a little and I were building rock towers while she wacked me with a large piece of wood) when I got that "ah ha" moment and few things crossed my mind. 1. My future children will only be allowed to play with big baskets of rocks and driftwood cause they make the best toys. 2. I know I can't, but I kind of want to wack her back, and 3. I want that chunk of pretty driftwood that I got from a beach off the coast or Washington (we LOVE Washington) around my neck.
And so I made a awesome driftwood necklace.
You should too.
The stuff you'll need
- A cool ass piece of driftwood that you want to wear on you neck (make sure it's smooth or else you may end up with a sliver)
- some hemp or cord the length you want you necklace plus a few extra inches
- a cool button
- a drill and a 3/8 (a small) bit
This project is going to take you all of about 5 minutes… so hold on tight.
Hole in wood….hemp through hole...
Make a loop and knot on one end and sting the button and knot it onto the other end. Trim away excess hemp.
What what… look at that.
Oh man, we are AWESOME!
