5 Useful Wooden Craft Ideas You Can Make for Your Home

Are you a creative person? Do you like nothing more than to spend your Sundays performing arts and crafts related activities? Then you’re definitely going to love the suggestions made in this article.

Most people think arts and crafts stop at card making, but this isn’t the case. With some handy equipment from a reputable retailer like glue guns direct, there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to create some really cool items using wood too. Of course, you’ll probably need some inspiration if this is something you haven’t tried before, which is why I’ve listed 5 items you might like to consider making below this paragraph.

Don’t get me wrong, you shouldn’t need a step by step guide to produce these products for your home, but sometimes we all need someone to point us in the right direction.


Wooden Craft Idea #1 - Original 3D Artwork

If you like to have attractive artwork hanging on the walls of your property, then why not save yourself some money by simply creating it yourself. Personally, I’d make a frame first and then spend some time designing the contents. Perhaps you might like to cut a flower out using a jigsaw and glue it into the centre of your frame. This often works well, and you shouldn’t have any problem doing it on your own.

Wooden Craft Idea #2 - Personalised Shelving

While you might be able to buy shelves relatively cheaply these days, the budget options are usually very plain and boring, which is why making your own could be ideal. All you need is some planks of wood and a decent saw. Firstly, cut the wood to size and then use the remaining material to decorate the front overhang in your own personal design. Some people like to engrave the wood using chisels and similar tools.

Wooden Craft Idea #3 - Shoe Racks

You’ll find lots of great designs and guides for creating shoe racks online, but those of you with a reasonable amount of woodworking knowledge will probably have no difficulty creating this item using your own common sense. Opting to add some brackets so the rack can be hung on the wall somewhere near your front door also works well.

Wooden Craft Idea #4 - Welcome Sign

This would usually sit just outside your home, and so you should be careful to coat the wood in a suitable varnish to ensure it doesn’t become damaged by weather. Thankfully, this kind of coating can be obtained from any DIY store in your area for less than £20, so there’s no excuse for not protecting your craftwork properly.

Wooden Craft Idea #5 - Coffee Table

This is probably the most complex idea I’ve included in this post, but it’s also one of the most rewarding. So, spending some extra time on making your coffee table to ensure it looks really smart is almost certainly a wise move. If you really want to push the boat out, you could also add some glass to the top, as this tends to create a more appealing aesthetic.

Well, that’s all from me today guys, but you should now have enough inspiration to keep ourselves occupied with wooden crafts for the next few months. Incidentally, if you do create anything mentioned in this post, feel free to send your photographs. I’d love to hear about how you get on.

Catch you next time!
