Easy Wood Craft Ideas – Now we’re on rustic material we love: wood! It’s as basic of a material as clay and is constantly reinvented by DIYers, crafters, artists, hackers, and carpenters.
To get inspired to create our own batch of cool wooden objects, we turned to our favorite fellow makers to see what projects they’ve come up with. Scroll down for our top DIY Easy Wood Craft Ideas picks.
1. DIY Wooden Picture Holders
Personalize your desk space and display your best shots with a DIY picture holder that calls for nothing more than a little wood, spray paint, and some inspiration. Add color as needed.
2. DIY Anthropologie Wall Organizer Hack
We love Anthro *almost* as much as we love a good hack, and this sweet wall DIY falls nothing short of fabulously organized. (via Fish & Bull)
3. DIY Painted Birch Slice Coasters
Just in time for summer dinners with all the rosé, these pastel birch coasters make a cute (and useful) addition to rest your bev on.
4. Wooden Bungee Organizers
These organizers are made using hobby board and bungee. They’re great for organizing sunglasses, cords, and scarves, especially in small apartments and homes.
5. Painted Wooden Spoons
You’ve likely seen this one kicking around Pinterest, but it’s so bright and colorful we just had to include it.
6. Antler Jewelry Board
If you go for a wander in just about any area that has tons of deer, you will definitely find shed antlers. Turn them into a caddy for all of your necklaces.
7. Wooden Orbit Mirror
8. Wooden Ring Pendants
We love the look of these wrapped wooden rings. You could also try using leather cord or paint pens to create similar designs.
9. Mops, Brooms, Gardening Tools
Who says chores have to lack style and color? Add a bit of spunk to your household essentials with paint, glitter, and shellac to seal the deal.
10. Pallet Dining Set
Definitely on the more involved side of our DIY spectrum, this dining set looks beautiful on a porch or terrace.
11. Nail String Art
A few pieces of wood, nails, and string are all you need to create this simple piece of art. Use words, shapes, or states for designs.
12. Western Wood Panel Shirt
Add a little flair to your favorite button downs by attaching painted wooden panels. Think “neon goes west.”
13. Embellished Wood Pencil Block
Such a great desk organizer!
14. The Ultimate DIY Accessory Organizer
If all your jewelry won’t fit on this huge organizer, you might have a hoarding problem… we’re guilty too. 😉
15. Driftwood Drawer Pull Necklace Holder
Another spot for organizing accessories? Don’t mind if we do!
16. Paint-By-Number Hex Symbol Coasters
These would make for great wedding favors!
17. Pallet-Top Desk
You might need to hit the flea market to make this one happen. Add a pallet topper to an old vintage desk, and you’ve got a stylish new setup.
18. Wooden Photos
Transferring photos to wood is an easy way to get that rustic vibe without sacrificing the bold hues you love.
19. Wood Grain Tins
It’s not actually made from wood, but we love this kitschy, woodgrain-look way of dressing up tins and containers.
20. Handmade Wooden Bangles
For a seriously rustic and bohemian look, use a wood-burning tool to create custom designs.
