Winter keeps marching on and so do the dinner parties. If you’re looking to beautify your own tabletop or are in need of host or hostess gift, we suggest you get crafty with The Merry Thought’s sleek, two-tone salt and pepper shaker DIY.
While they may look like they’re straight out of a specialty store, the shakers are really crafted out of wooden dowels that have been sliced, drilled, plugged at the bottom with a cork stopper and painted. Colorway-wise, you can stick with classic black and white or go wild with whatever palette floats your boat. Either way, get your tool box ready and make your way over to The Merry Thought for instructions.
