We’ve been working on a room renovation and there’s a lot of small pieces of wood laying around. In fact, I been moving them all over the place so we don’t trip over them.

You know me, I kept looking at that pile, thinking that I could make something with it. Let me show you how I made this easy scrap wood patriotic centerpiece.

Simply Centerpiece Quick DIY 2x4 4th of July

This is a super quick project with so many design options. I worked with the scrap wood that I had, I only cut a few pieces.

How to Make a Scrap Wood Centerpiece

you will need:

  1. Wood (I used 2″ x 4″ wood)
  2. Spray paint (really any paint will work)
  3. Wood glue or nails
  4. Drill and drill bit
  5. Patriotic decor, small flags

Spray paint the scraps, I used red, white and blue. I didn’t have to buy the paint as I am a paint hoarder but we don’t need to talk about that right now ๐Ÿ˜‰

After the paint dried, I used a nail gun to attach each piece of wood. I started with the blue and worked my way out to the red. You can use wood glue instead, just strap the pieces together until it dries. Be careful not to use too much so that it doesn’t ooze out.

Drill holes in the top of each, I made mine the same size as the flag pole (sticks). This is where you could get creative and make the space larger and add more sparkles ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Making that centerpiece would be very economical as would survive many holidays when it would be featured. Could buy sparklies at $tree. Love a fun decoration that’s easy, simple and so pretty. Using scrap wood pieces is great way to use up instead of throwing away. That’s why I have so much “stuff” stored for future use.
      Happy crafting
