DIY: DRIFTWOOD NECKLACE ORGANIZER
• hook screws
• mason twine
• sand paper
1. This might seem like an obvious first step, but finding the right piece of driftwood for this project is important. Look for a piece of wood with good coloring and enough curve to give it interest, but not so much going on that it will look cluttered when hung with necklaces. Also, imagine how the driftwood will hang on the wall and make sure there are at least two areas that you will be able to drill holes into in order to hang the final project.
2. Next, clean your driftwood by removing any unwanted bark and use a fine grit sand paper to smooth things out a bit. You don't have to go crazy with this step, but I found that the ends of my driftwood were a little rough. Also, if you're unhappy with the natural coloring of your wood, I would suggest bleaching it. I read these (1,2) articles about bleaching driftwood and found them to be very helpful.
