DIY Deko aus Holz

Today there is again a very simple DIY guide for you, namely  DIY decoration made of wood . To be more precise, I'm going to show you today how to make an X out of wooden boards yourself. Such a wooden letter makes a great decoration on a sideboard or on the wall. To make a decorative wooden letter you don't necessarily have to get new boards from the hardware store if you have old boards at home. The wood from a pallet is also ideal for this.

1 long wooden board dimensions: 46 x 10 x 2 cm and 2 wooden boards dimensions: 18 x 10 x 2 cm 

4 wooden dowels 

drilling machine

That's how it works:

  • A total of 8 holes must be drilled for the wooden dowels. 2 each on the short boards and 4 (2 on each side) on the long board. You have to make sure that the holes are evenly spaced from each other and that the short boards can really be attached in the middle of the long board. 
  • Now you put the wooden boards together using the wooden dowels and that's it.

Tip: You could also simply glue the wooden boards together with wood glue, but you would also need a screw clamp, which I unfortunately do not have (but still comes on the wish list). If you happen to have a screw clamp at hand, you can also glue the wooden parts together.

My boards are from an old pallet, which I briefly sanded and cleaned. I think they really have a nice color and grain. But you can also use boards from the hardware store, where you can also have the wood cut to order.

With the same method you can also make a coaster that is super practical for a teapot. I bought this wood in the hardware store, it cost about 1 euro and you can make about 2 coasters out of it. You only need 2 wooden dowels for the coaster.
