I didn't have time to go to the beach and collect drifted wood, but the idea just didn't leave me alone. So this morning I saw a branch under a tree, and took it home with me. I wanted my display to be wider than Erlends, so I modified the "design" a bit.
I cleaned the branch, saw it to the size I wanted, and spray painted it (with white). After the paint had dried, I drilled holes to the branch for the string. The holes are about 7 cm apart from each other.
Then I thread the string through the holes, tied a knot to the other end and let the other end hang loose. And that's it! You can hang anything you want to this: kids art, photos, small decorations or a mix of things, like I did.
And here's the display with autumn leaves.
