What do I need to make homemade wooden Christmas decorations?

To make homemade wooden Christmas decorations, you will need a few essential supplies and tools. Here are some suggestions:

  • Wood: Pick a type of wood that works well for crafting, like pine or birch. You can buy pre-cut wooden pieces or cut them yourself with a saw.
  • Sandpaper: It’s important to smooth out the rough edges of the wood. Use different grits of sandpaper to get the level of smoothness you want. Here’s our blog post about sandpaper for furniture painting to help you choose the right type of sandpaper for your project.
  • Paint and Brushes: Grab some acrylic or craft paint in different colors to give your decorations a fun touch. And don’t forget to have a few paintbrushes of different sizes for different painting techniques. Here’s our best paint brushes for painting furniture to learn more about the differences between each paint brush!
  • Decorative Materials: Think about using ribbons, beads, glitter, or faux snow to make your wooden decorations look even better. You can easily attach these with glue or a hot glue gun.
  • Cutting Tools: If you want to create intricate designs, you might need a coping saw, scroll saw, or a wood carving knife to cut the wood into the shapes you want.
  • Protective Gear: Remember to wear safety goggles and gloves when working with tools or chemicals to keep yourself safe.

Once you have gathered all the necessary materials, you can start your own homemade wooden Christmas decorations. Enjoy crafting!
