Hey everyone! It’s Angela from Number Fifty-Three and I am so excited to be back sharing another craft with you all.
A DIY weathered wood craft garland.
I loved working with these wood shapes I found at the craft store. They even came pre-punched which made creating this garland fast and easy.Here’s what you need to create your own weathered wood garland: pre-punched wood shapes, stain (I used gray), clean rags, stencil, stencil brush, white paint, sandpaper, scissors, twine. Simply, wipe the stain onto the front and back of each piece of wood and remove the excess using the clean rags.
Once dry, pick a few to stencil. I placed my stencils randomly and used very little paint. Remember, I was going for a weathered and worn look here.
Once the paint is dry, lightly sand each wood piece (this further adds to the aged feel).
Lastly, string the wood pieces onto the twine. I did two separate garlands and them tied them both together at the ends.
I just love how this simple and inexpensive craft can transition from spring into the warmer summer months.
