8 top favorite DIY wood crafts from 2018
Here is the count down of the 8 top favorite wood crafts from 2018. (Minus the MOST FAVORITE craft–I’m saving that for a post all of it’s own!!) But first, let me tell you. In January 2018, I started hosting crafting events (AKA craft night). I use to host them years ago and I loved it so much, that I decided to start doing it again. This new endeavor began small with a few people in attendance, but closed out the year with a bang! It was a great year with lots of fun times and definitely what I had been missing.
So……here they are:
#8 Pallet Candy corns
I made these adorable little treats from pallet wood. They come in various sizes measuring about 7-10 inches wide by about 7-10 inches tall. They were specifically made so you can display them standing alone or they can be leaned against something. BONUS!! they can be used the whole FALL season!
#7 Polka-dot Pumpkin
This pumpkin is one of my faves! I love glitter!!! The finished pumpkin can stand on it’s own wherever you choose to display it. This beauty, measures approximately 11.5 inches wide X 12.5 inches high and will definitely catch your eye!
This is a set of 3 wooden firecrackers. Each pillar measures 3×3 inches square around and are differing heights of 6, 8, & 11 inches. Each is finished with a hand made wire fuse. The medium sized one has 3 stars made of MDF glued to the front while the smallest one has some bakers twine tied around it.
#5 Jingle bell trees
This is a cluster of 3 wooden trees standing tall together. The 3 colored trees are connected. These will look great on the porch, in the center of your home for your tree, or even next to your mantle. Measures approx 4 feet tall by 20 inches wide.
#4 Large Pallet pumpkin
This beauty was awesome to make! It will take about 45-60 minutes (drying time included) to complete. Its very simple and easy to make. This popular decor item measures about 15 inches wide x 18 inches tall (20 inches if you count the stem) Definitely a classic!
#3 Candy coffin
This item has got to be one of the coolest items we have ever offered! It was also on of the funnest to make! This candy coffin has a hinged top with a clasp to secure it closed. The inside is just as awesome as the outside! This spooky decoration doubles as a candy holder for the trick-or-treat-ers.
#2 Planter boxes
These are beautiful centerpieces for your holiday table! They can also be displayed on a mantle, entryway, shelf, or top of cupboard. They measure approximately 30 inches long x 6 inches wide and stands 4 inches tall.
#1 Dovetail holiday wood sign
These signs are definitely a great starter piece or a bonus piece for your fall collection. This sign measures 12 inches wide X 17 inches tall.
Over all, I had a great year! I’m so glad that I took the challenge to start hosting craft events (AKA craft nights). I need to give a BIG shout out to Burton Avenue for all the encouragement and all my stencil and vinyl needs! I had a lot of fun looking back over all the projects I did and I liked seeing what you (my craft night attenders) liked most. I can’t wait to share with you what the MOST favorite, popular, ordered craft of the whole year was! Stay tuned! –Brandee
