I mentioned before that my Dad builds chicken coops in his retirement, so he always has a ton of scrap wood.

Whenever I visit I grab some scraps for projects.

For these DIY wooden Christmas presents he cut some to size for me about 12″x24″. 

They are pretty rough, but it adds to the distressed look and they are free!

These can be used inside or outside. If you are using them outside, like I will be, definitely add a waterproof sealer. 


Here is the simple tutorial.

Scrap Wood Easy Christmas Present Crafts



Step 1.

Paint the scrap wood whatever color you like. I used a white chalk paint. You will need at least 2-3 coats. Let it dry completely.

Step 2.

Attach the buffalo check ribbon to the scrap wood the same way you attach ribbon to a present.

Step 3.

Add Christmas berries, fresh greens and cotton stems. I used a little hot glue to secure them.

Step 4.

Use the red chalk paste to add the Christmas sentiment to the chalkable chips. These will act as the gift tags for these cute Christmas presents. Hot glue the jingle bell and you are done!

These wood Christmas presents will be added to my outdoor porch decor, which I’ll be sharing next week.

We’ve been having some pretty bad weather the past few days, so I wasn’t able to take photos of them outside.

I’ll be sure to share a picture here when it’s all done.
