Hey friends! I know, twice this week!! It felt so good to create my last post after being absent for a bit, so I wanted to share a super easy DIY in time for your Easter celebrations. I found the idea for my latest creation on Pinterest, and wanted to share my take on it with you. I didn’t spend one penny, so I hope you don’t have to either!
Speaking of Pinterest, I invite you to follow me if you aren’t already. What an amazing platform when it comes to sharing ideas, wow. I feel like I go in spurts with Pinterest, but as of lately I am pinning like crazy, so go check it out!
I love adding just a touch of coastal vibe into our home. One, we live by the lake, so I think it’s only fitting. Two, the beach is my favorite place to be, so bringing a few salty air touches into our home brings me peace.
A few years back, I found this piece of driftwood on the beach and brought it home. I cleaned it, applied a white wash to it, and had Glenn screw it to the wall. I loved how that simple piece made a statement among my gallery wall. So when I came across this photo on Pinterest (see below) I had to try this idea with my piece of driftwood.
Talk about easy!! Here’s what you need:
- Jute, or any type of strong string or chord
- Small jars
- Driftwood piece or branch
I didn’t end up using the pompom string pictured here.
Cut a piece of jute and wrap it around and under the lip of your jar, and tie a knot. Then measure how long you wish to have your jars hanging. I wanted mine to be different lengths.
Since my piece of driftwood was already hanging, I had to assemble with having someone help me. So, fold your jute in half, wrap it around your piece of wood and loop the 2 ends through the top.
Then tie each loose end to a side of the first string your wrapped around the lip of the jar. Repeat with other jars.
I added a small amount of water to all 3 and snipped a few green plants. It’s so charming isn’t it? What a fun way to root new growth.
But these daffodils stole the show. So simple and elegant!! I love it when something that appears easy to accomplish, REALLY IS!
I had all the materials on hand, I hope you do too! This would be a simple idea on a larger scale as a backdrop for your Easter dinner this weekend! I can’t wait to put some tulips in these <3
