The Best DIY Kitchen Decor

Whether you are cooking up a homemade meal for the holidays or just a typical Tuesday-night dinner, food has always been a meaningful way to bring people together. The sense of love that food brings should be reflected in your kitchen’s decor – right? While you could head over to a local home-goods or furniture store to buy some kitchen décor, DIY crafts are a fun and cost-effective way to add a more personal touch. Here is a list of our favorite simple yet impactful DIY kitchen decor ideas.

 

1. Farmhouse Cutting Board Kit

diy kitchen craftsMake the expression “home is where the heart is” come to life with this rustic kitchen décor piece. To make this craft, you will need a wooden cutting board, a wooden “home” cutout, a house and small heart cutout piece, wood stain/paint, paint brushes, and glue.

  1. Start off with your cutting board. Leave the board as is or feel free to distress, stain, or paint. This step is the perfect opportunity to unleash your creativity. You can stain your board to match your kitchen cabinets or even paint it to fit your home’s color scheme. The options to customize are endless! Let completely dry when done.
  2. While your cutting board is drying, paint/stain the laser cut “home” and house pieces. We recommend painting them a contrasting color from the cutting board so that they can stand out. Once again, let completely dry.
  3. After all of your pieces are dry, you can now assemble. Take your “home” and house pieces and arrange onto your cutting board. Once you are satisfied with their placement, glue them down into place.

To display your cutting board masterpiece, simply prop up on your kitchen counter or hang.

To make this craft, you will need a wooden plank, wood stain/paint, paint brushes, venue letters for your chosen quote or saying, a kraft stick, a metal, mountable bottle opener, screws, and a screwdriver.

  1. Sand your wooden plank and drill holes at the top where your opener will go.
  2. Paint your wood plank’s background and sides. Let completely dry. Optional: if you want to achieve a more rustic feel, distress the painted board with sandpaper. Gently scratch off the top layer of paint to allow hints of the wood to peek through.
  3. Next, select your vinyl quote/design. Once selected, remove the top layer of paper to reveal the sticky side of the vinyl letters and shapes. Place the sticker upside down onto your board. Make sure you are happy with the orientation of your design as you will be unable to reposition it later.
  4. After properly positioned, rub the vinyl with a kraft stick to transfer the design to the wood. Be sure to remove all bumps and air bubbles.
  5. To finish, use a screwdriver to attach the metal opener into the pre-drilled holes with the screws provided. Ensure screws are secured tightly.

To display, hang your beer opener up by your fridge, bar cart or on any free wall.
