Wooden crafts can be a great way to create something beautiful without a very high cost. There are a lot of projects that you can do that are made just out of wood that you may have laying around your home. From jewelry holders to beautiful home decor pieces, you can build many rustic designs.
If you have a lot of necklaces that you’d like to hang to avoid tangling, there’s a great project that you can make to do so. This jewelry holder is made out of a flat piece of wood, such as driftwood or just a thin piece of wood that’s about one inch thick.
To create the necklace holder, you’ll need to find some sturdy sticks that you’d like to use for the actual jewelry holding. These sticks will be secured in the flat piece of wood. If you’d like, you can paint the wood or keep it the original color.
To insert the sticks into the wood, drill holes a bit smaller than the size of the sticks. Then, you’ll carve the ends of the sticks so that they will fit in the flat wood. Secure the sticks in the wood by using wood glue. To hang the holder, you can use two small nails on each side of the top of the board. Attach a wire to the nails and then hang from a screw.
If you’re looking for a nice mirror decoration in your home, you can create one quite easily out of wood. To make this, you’ll need a few supplies. You want around 15 one and a half inch circle wooden cutouts. You’ll also need around 15 three inch wooden circles. For the mirrors, you’ll need circular mirrors in two sizes, one inch and two inches. You’ll want about 10 of each size.
The other supplies include black tea bags, mounting tape or adhesive hooks, and wood glue. The tea bag can be used wet as a stain for the wooden cutouts. Once they have dried, glue the mirrors to the wooden circles using the wood glue. Then glue all of the wooden pieces together with the wood glue in whatever design you’d like. Allow the piece to dry overnight. You can use the hanging hooks to secure it to the wall.
If you have some larger tree branches laying around your yard, you can cut the branch into circles to create coasters for in your home. To do this, find a piece of wood that’s around four inches in diameter. Cut the branch into circles that are about half an inch thick. You can sand the cut inside of the wood to create a smooth surface. Then, you can paint the surface with designs if you’d like. This can be a very quick and simple way to add a bit of wooden decoration to your home or to give out as gifts.
Wooden projects can be very easy to create and make your home look stunning. The crafts are typically affordable since most of the materials are things you may already have around your home. These wooden craft ideas can be a great way to give out affordable gifts that you actually made instead of just purchasing.
