Crafting with wood for beginners

Common questions to us are: "is wood burning difficult?" or "what can you craft quickly?".
Hobbying with wood is a very suitable hobby for beginners. You need fairly little and relatively inexpensive hobby materials for quick results.
Below we provide craft tips on what you can craft with wood.

Crafts with wood for adults

You would like to craft something with wood but don't know exactly what. On Pinterest you browse for craft ideas for adults, for example decorations for the home. Crafting with wood is a great hobby for adults! But what can you do with wood? On this page we give tips on what you can craft with wood.

Painting on hobby wood

The simplest technique which gives quick results is painting the blank wooden object. We have a wide range of basic wooden materials that you can paint. For example, wooden discs, wooden vases and even wooden Christmas trees.
In addition to wood, we also have MDF figures in our hobby range and decowood. These materials are also very suitable for painting with paint. The most suitable paint for painting hobby wood is acrylic paint.

Decoupage napkins on wood

Wooden items are also great for making decoupage figures.

How do you work with decoupage?
Finish the clear wood with white gesso or white acrylic paint. This will keep the colors of the napkin bright. 
Allow to dry and then apply the napkin glue. 
Include the edges as well. Let the glue dry slightly.
Peel the napkin and then place the napkin on the glue. Rub the napkin gently, also working away wrinkles and other bumps.
Allow to dry and apply another thin coat of glue as a protective varnish.

Decoupage supplies

  • Decoupage glue
  • Decoupage paper (napkins)
  • Decoupage substrate (e.g., wood or glass)
  • Flat soft brush

    Tip: Use a sanding block to neatly sand the edges of the napkin after gluing.

Wood engraving with a wood burner

Our wooden hobby items are also beautiful blank. To still give it a personal touch, wood burning is a very nice hobby. Wood burning is very relaxing and you can easily give wooden objects a personal touch. For example, make a personalized maternity gift by burning the baby's name on a wooden box. Wood burning also gives a very professional result right away.

How to engrave wood?
Wood can be engraved in a variety of ways. One convenient way to engrave wood yourself is with a wood burner. With a fancy word, they also call a wood burner a pyrography set. The possibilities within wood burning are endless. In addition to wood, you can also engrave leather with it.
The wood burner in our range from Stafil comes with a total of 19 attachments + a cutting blade. So you can vary endlessly in fine and coarser designs.
Beware: the metal of the wood burner gets very hot, so caution is advised. Especially with children around.
Swapping points? Let the previous one cool first before putting on another dot.

Embosing on wood

What not everyone knows is that you can also emboss on wood. The technique works the same as on paper.
On the brand page of WOW embossing is to read more about the embossing technique.

Acrylic pouring on wood

Acrylic pouring can be done over wood in addition to canvas.
In the video below from DecoArt wooden Easter eggs are painted with pouring.

Photo transfer to wood

Transferring a photo to wood is also a fun crafting tip! To print a photo on wood, use a photo transfer medium. On the brand page of Viva Decor is a video on how to easily transfer a photo to wood yourself.

Mosaics on wood

Another way to decorate your wooden article is through mosaic. You can stick small pieces of ceramic on the wood yourself, but we also have ready-made mosaic tiles made of glass. These mosaic tiles of Stafil are available in both square and round in beautiful colors. In addition to mosaic tiles, you also need glue and grout for mosaicing on wood. All these mosaic supplies are available in our assortment.

String art on wood

What is string art? Literally translated it is string art, string figure making is also called string art. But how do you make these string figures?
First, you sketch a pattern on the wood with pencil. Then you hammer several nails into the wood at the edge of your pattern. Between these nails you stretch yarn.
Above are examples of a string figure. String art can also be made with chunkier string, string art in a new look.

String art supplies:

  • Wooden product
  • Nails
  • Thread (yarn or cord)

Dots on wood

Dots on porcelain is a very relaxing hobby, but of course you can also dot on wood. For this you do not use porcelain paint but acrylic paint.
