Step 1

Select a piece of driftwood or cutting from a branch that’s about 12 to 16 inches long. Check to make sure the wood is dry and free of insects.

Good to Know

A piece of driftwood that’s too long can cause the completed jewelry holder to tip over.

Step 2

Use pliers to remove the screw from the bun foot and sand the top, bottom, and sides smooth.

Step 3

Guide used for drilling into the bun foot base.

On the narrow end of the bun foot, drill a 5/8-inch hole about 1 inch deep. Mark a point along the length of your piece of driftwood where it balances. Drill a 1-inch-deep hole in the driftwood at the balance point.

Good to Know

You’ll need to drill a hole in the base that’s 90 degrees to the surface. If you don’t have a drill press, practice drilling holes in a scrap 2 x 4 until you have one that works. Then use that hole as a guide to drill into the bun foot.

Step 4

Cut a 9-inch-long piece of copper pipe. (You can make the height slightly shorter or longer to suit the size of your driftwood piece.)

Step 5

As an optional decoration, paint the colors of your choice in bands around the driftwood. (We used Rachel Pink, Cool Laguna, and Beachcomber.)

Step 6

Turn jewelry into a room decoration by hanging it from a holder fashioned from driftwood. --Lowe’s Creative Ideas

Insert the copper pipe in the bun foot base. If necessary, you can add epoxy adhesive to help fill any gap between the wood and the pipe. Then insert the other end of the pipe in the driftwood.
