Diy Crafts For The Home

Additional Craft Information:

Making things out of wood is more than a hobby to me, it is more of an obsession. The look on my sons face when I finish a new wooden elastic band gun or wooden sword is just amazing. Here I will list 5 easy woodworking projects that can each be made in a couple of hours and the end results are great.

DIY Craft Essential #1: Washi tape

You'd be surprised at how many things you can do, and how many tutorials out there are obsessed, with washi tape. The versatile paper tape with adorable designs makes great wall decor, paper crafts or can even spruce up your furniture.

DIY Craft Essential #2: Needle nose pliers

This tiny tool is great for small projects. "This is not only your go­-to tool for opening and closing jump rings, bending wire, and securing crimp beads and ribbon ends, but pliers are also great for cutting through jewelry chain and wire," said Morin.

1. Wooden toys.

Quite a vague description I know but there are some really simple things you can make here that your kids will love and play with for years. Perhaps the simplest of the easy woodworking projects is a wooden sword or wooden guitar. All that is involved here is drawing a shape on some wood and cutting it out. Put some effort into the sanding and finishing of your toy and the results can be really cool. I made my son a sword years ago and he loves it to this day.

2. Wooden bird house.

DIY Craft Essential #3: X-acto knife

If you love stationary crafts, jewelry crafts or any delicate work -- you'll need a proper cutting tool. Not all scissors can do the job. "Remember first using scissors and cutting along the dotted lines in grade school?" Morin asked. "Hopefully, you’re attempting more challenging crafts as an adults."

DIY Craft Essential #4: Spray paint

Acrylic paints are also great for any DIY starter kit. However, if you're looking for a perfect, seamless finish on your furniture, art and home decor -- make some space to spray. It doesn't hurt to keep some cans in your favorite colors (as long as you store them properly).

Again this is a simple project that can be built in a matter of a couple of hours and the finished product will be a nice focul point to any garden. This easy woodworking project is slightly harder than the toys above but is still well within the reach of a beginner. The only wood you need for this project is six square and these can be fixed with l shaped brackets.

3.Wooden garden bench.

The garden bench can be put together in no time by simply fixing wooden slats together. The simplicity of this very easy woodworking project belies just how good the finished article looks. In fact I bet the one you could make will look better than one you could buy in a shop and for a fraction of the price.

4. A wooden go kart.

I must admit that this is my all time favourite, I will never forget scouring the backstreets trying find suitable wheels for my first go kart. I built it with no plans and it turned out ok. Later karts that I built using wood working plans turned out much better.

5. A wooden rocking horse.

Now this can be a real money maker, I has sold a fair number of these and they don't go cheap. A decent set of wooden rocking horse plans can yield you great results and the project is so simple to put together. This is one of the best of the easy woodworking projects to go for if you want to get something back from your hobby.

Thats just 5 easy woddworking projects and there are thousands more, the only reason I listed these ones is that I have built them with superb results.

DIY Craft Essential #5: Painter's tape

Painter's tape is "perfect for for attempting the c​olor block trend," said Morin. Plus, you'll need something to keep your projects neat and tidy, no matter what type of paints you use.

DIY Craft Essential #6: Hot glue gun

There are some tools that are too functional not to have. "This is one DIY workhorse tool you shouldn't do without," said Morin. Hot melt glue works on a variety of materials.
