Salvaged Driftwood Wall Hanging

I rarely close the hallway door to my studio so I don’t notice the stuff that is hanging on the wall behind the door.  We had out of town guests last weekend and I sipped my morning cup of coffee in the studio with the door shut.  This metal ring had been harvested from a lampshade that I had torn apart and the idea for this wall hanging popped into my imagination as I was sitting with my coffee.

After a quick trip to the garage I found some cool pieces of driftwood, one long one for the top and some thin ones to hang down.

Step One:  decide where to drill holes for the driftwood pieces and bead strands.

Step Two:  wire wrap the long piece on each side of the ring.

Step Three: Wire wrap the pieces of driftwood and attach them to the ring at the bottom.  Make bead strands attaching them at the bottom also.

Step Four:  Cover the wire loops at the top with moss or lichen.

Step Five:  Since there was a large “V” shaped space that needed filling, I used a metal charm “salvaged” and an old skeleton key to fill the space plus add interest.

This was an easy project that came to be because of serendipity!  Isn’t that fun?
