Put a cork in it...

When I saw this idea

I knew I wanted to make one
with my own twist

I glued a 15/16 in
washer on each end

I had sm washers
on hand that fit right in the hole
You can use any size with a
smaller hole

I then glues a nut
on top of it

then screwed the eye hook
I put a small part of glue
on the screw portion
in to the cork

I did the same on both end

I took left over
beads and charms
and made danglies

added a ring
and it was complete

A few of the ones I made:



These would make great
