Who would have thought that wooden curtain rings make the most perfect mini life savers!

easy nautical wood craft with vintage curtain rings
It's an easy nautical wood craft idea for a rainy afternoon.


mini life saver rings from vintage curtain rings
Cathe Holden from Just Something I Made used vintage curtain rings for this project, small alphabet rubber stamps, stamp pad and Sharpie markers.

She says vintage curtain rings are easy to find on Ebay, Etsy, antique shops and thrift stores. The chunkier the better. New rings will work fine as well, however they tend to be skinnier. Home Depot sells drapery rings. Simply unscrew the eye screws attached to the rings and lightly sand the painted wood to achieve a distressed finish. Aren't they just adorable!

I collected a ton of small conch shells from the sands of Sapelo Island on the Georgia coast...and about 50 perfect sand dollars too. I'm trying to rid them of their fishy scent. that will take time. but i'm inspired by so much of what i see here!

Hi Maya, Wow, those are so adorable, I want to make some! I wish I could take credit for making the terra cotta shell pot, but it was a curb find. Hope you're having a great week, Mary :O)
