Last week was all about rope, and now we’re onto another rustic material we love: wood! It’s as basic of a material as clay and is constantly reinvented by DIYers, crafters, artists, hackers, and carpenters. To get inspired to create our own batch of cool wooden objects, we turned to our favorite fellow makers to see what creative projects they’ve come up with. Here are 40 DIY wood projects we love.
1. Wooden Bungee Organizers: First, something from the Brit + Co. archive. These organizers were made using hobby board and bungee. They’re great for organizing sunglasses, cords, and scarves, especially in small apartments and homes. (via Brit + Co.)
3. Antler Jewelry Board: If you go for a wander in just about any area that has tons of deer, you will definitely find a good amount of antlers that have been shed. Turn them into a caddy for all of your necklaces. (via Rebecca’s DIY)
9. Color-Dipped Wooden Beads: The color-dipped look is always a surefire way to transform just about anything from standard to trendy by way of the color block trend. It might be cool to try doing the same thing with all sorts of different sized beads and more angular designs. (via Swallow’s Heart)
