Green Project: Wood Art Collage

Hi DIY-ers! Look at this beautiful piece of art made from scraps by Lynn at Nonflammable! Her blog is FULL of creative, unique and beautiful DIY projects with tutorials! I couldn’t help but go through her entire blog … enjoying each one! (Thanks Donna!)

Here is Lynn’s tutorial:

I have an accumulation of wood scraps from various home remodel projects.

Recently, my dad gave me a box of some interesting looking scraps.
Of course i couldn’t say no.
I decided to make a wood collage with them
for a unique art piece to hang near our outdoor dining area.

What you will need for this diy: ½ thick plywood cut to size. assortment of wood scraps/trim pieces paints and stain, optional wood sander miter saw wood glue findings; hardware, kitchen utensils, nails…I left off the fish. Square nails from the 1800’s It comes together better if the sizes and shapes are similar. Working from the outer edges of your plywood to the center allows for a clean finish whether you intend to frame it or not. You may have to layer up as you work towards the middle; the depth adds interest. Make sure you have a general layout before gluing. Use a wood saw towards the end to fill gaps, or layer up. I found it easier to paint after all pieces were in place, and made a frame with cedar left over from our deck remodel. If it hangs outdoors, apply a protective sealant. Embellish your collage with your findings.

WOW! Lynn – it’s beautiful and perfect art work for an outdoor dining area! Awesome job! Thanks for sharing!
