Got scrap wood lying around? PERFECT. This project is quick and uses that pile of wood you’ve been hoarding over the years. Cut down to whatever size you want (this tutorial uses square dowel-sized pieces roughly 6 inches long) and then use paint and stenciling to add the saying of your choice. Sand a little to get that rustic feel and then hang and enjoy.

One of the best things about the rustic look is all the use of natural elements, like twigs and wood slices.

Grab sticks and twigs, rummage in your sewing box for unused buttons, and glue together in shapes like Christmas trees and stars. Voila!
