Heart-shaped treasures found on the beach inspired this romantic nautical decor: a DIY rocks and sea glass mobile for the wall. This nature-made coastal decor is perfect for any room in the home.
Do you have a collection of sea glass and/or driftwood that you're looking for a way to use?

To begin, wrap each rock you've selected with wire. We tried a few different approaches but ended on the approach in the photos.
Once the rocks and/or sea glass have been wrapped, arrange them how you would like them to appear in the mobile. String one doubled piece of fishing line through the back of each set of three rocks.
Drill three evenly-spaced holes into a piece of interesting driftwood and thread the strands of rocks through each hole.
To secure the fishing line in place, cut small wedges from a wooden dowel and gently tapped them into place.
Trim the excess fishing line from the middle strand and tie the excess line from the outer strands together to make the hanger for your new nautical decor.
