DIY Drift Wood Feather Mobile

Nature gives us the most amazing treasures. One of my favorite thing to do is to make collections out of the bits of nature that I find most beautiful. This mobile is perfect for showcasing them. 
  • 1 driftwood or stick 
  • feathers, shells, beach glass, sea kelp 
  • scissors 
  • string 
  • embroidery needle 
  1. Start by gathering all of your supplies. I sort of decided what I was going to do with each piece before I attached them to the string. 
  2. For the feathers, I used needle and string to thread it through the quill. 
  3. Attach the rocks, shells, and feathers onto strings in a random arrangement. 
  4. Line them up and tie them to the driftwood. Tie a string to either side of the driftwood to allow for hanging.
