I thought that this week, I would show you how to make wooden stars from scrap wood. Wooden stars are the perfect accent piece for bookshelves because you can use them any time of the year. And since we are using scrap wood to make them, you can make one for every holiday or season.
This year I am joining up with Remodelaholic and almost thirty other bloggers for the Remodelaholic Creative Christmas Challenge! And as my contribution to the challenge, I have created a reversible interchangeable DIY easel.
To challenge myself, I wanted to make something that a lot of people want, but add a spin to it – hence the reversible/interchangeable part. However, I didn’t stop there, I decided to also make this with no power tools. Yes, you heard me right! Absolutely no power tools.
This year, I have been making a lot of my own Christmas decorations. I wanted to have a good mix of neutral farmhouse decorations to go with my champaign gold theme. In particular, I wanted to find some wooden stars in a neutral finish. Well naturally, I am not likely to purchase something that I can make with things from my scrap wood bin. As a result, I am able to share with you how to make farmhouse style wooden stars!
Have you ever wondered how people get all those elaborate angles in their woodwork? I use to only use them when I was doing an inlay in wood flooring. Then, I started building decor pieces for my home, and I ventured fully into the territory of mitered angles that go beyond the standard 45º cut. With furniture and cabinetry, it is all about creating curves and box shapes. But when you want to get creative with something, you may find that you need some weird angle – like a 50º, 60º, or 70º miter. It can present a conundrum. So, I thought that I would show you how to cut any angle with a miter saw.
Right now, Putka pods are one of the trendiest pieces of decor for the Fall season, and they will probably remain so for years to come. If you are asking yourself, ‘what exactly is a Putka pod?” Well, they are those adorable things that look like miniature pumpkins. You have probably seen them mixed in with your potpourri. They are cute and well-loved by most. However, there are some important details that you need to know before you start using them in your crafts and decor. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the pros and cons of decorating with Putka Pods.
