Easy DIY Fall Project From Scrap Wood
Our arbor on the back deck needed to be replaced. When my husband cut ends off of the beams, inspiration hit. I saw the scraps lying around and took them for a project.
No cutting or sanding for me. Nope, I repurposed the scraps that would end up in the trash, into an inviting piece of home decor.
I saw the wood ends lying around, so I took them inside and arranged them in an eye please layout. I sent my son out on a scavenger hunt for twigs that had fallen in the yard. Then, I grabbed the drill and got to work.
I matched up the drill bits to the size of twigs I had obtained.
Time to use power tools!!!!! I notched the wood with a screw driver to mark the spot I wanted the twig. This also helps the drill bit not to skip out of place while boaring into the wood.
After the holes were added, I made sure the twigs were a snug fit and broke them in an appropriate length to stick into the holes. I now had blocks with stems.
After, it was time for paint. I painted pumpkin orange and added yellow highlights and brown shadows.
Base paint dried, I hand painted brown letters on each block spelling out “Fall” when assembled.
Next step was to assemble. I used standard wood glue and clamped tight for good contact.
When totally dry, it was time for adding a touch of embellishments with hot glue —just a couple silk leaves for a simple effect.
Here is the final project all complete. A cute, festive fall sign for my home that cost me $0.00
I hope you enjoy this simple project and use this idea to branch off to make something of your own!
