Simple DIY Wood Projects For An Afternoon

Simple DIY Wood Projects For An Afternoon

Have some extra wood around or want to check out our 8 for $8 Lake Tahoe board sale? I’m all about simple DIY wood projects, especially when I have the materials. Like many Pinterest and DIY lovers, I often have a hard time knowing where to start, and I sometimes don’t end up actually completing the project.

To help you in your search for ways to use your extra wood or new Lake Tahoe boards, I’ve collected some simple DIY wood project ideas that only require some extra wood, a few tools and materials, and a free afternoon.

See the colors that are included in the Lake Tahoe boards here.

Create a one of a kind wall decoration

  1. Use wood glue wood letters, numbers, or a design. Use a quote, last name, anniversary date, geometric design, or favorite lyric to make it your own.
  2. Add clips or tacks to create a collage of photos. See how to make it here.

To avoid the boards from falling or damaging your wall, be sure to buy sturdy hooks – these are real wood and will be heavy. Ask your local hardwood store or craft store for suggestions on which type to purchase.

Add some green to your home

Succulents have never been more popular, but for those of us who aren’t great plant parents, it can be frustrating to even have these guys die on us. Thankfully, faux plants have also never been more real looking and are easy to find. You can buy lightweight pots to nail or glue onto the boards. A wreath can even be attached to the board for a quick decoration.
