How to Make a Bamboo Skewer DIY Cutting Board Decor

Start by laying the dry erase paddle board on your Dollar Tree cardboard sign and trace its shape on the sign.

I used two paddle boards so the cutting board portion would be longer. Then, cut out the cutting board shape from the cardboard sign.

Hot glue bamboo skewers across the cardboard sign, then use a pair of aviation snips to trim the bamboo skewers hanging off the cardboard sign.

I sanded over the skewers with a sanding sponge to remove any hot glue that had clumped up on the surface.

Now, I did have to hot glue a giant craft stick down the handle on the back of the cardboard sign to make it sturdier, then I started staining the bamboo skewers!

How to stain wood

Mix a bit of brown paint (I used Apple Barrel Burnt Umber Acrylic Paint) with water in a small bowl and use a paint brush to spread the mixture across the bamboo skewers.

Wipe over bamboo skewers with a wet wipe to remove any excess paint from the surface. Next, I made a tassel out of jute twine.

Loop the twine around your hand several times, then loop the end of the twine around the bundle and hot glue it in place. Cut the bottom of the loop to create the tassel.

Tie a second piece of twine to the top loop of that tassel and thread your wooden beads onto the twine. I alternated bead sizes to add some dimension to this project.

Once you’re happy with the length, tie off the other end of the jute twine and leave a loop on that end.

To make the bow for this bamboo skewer DIY cutting board, fold your ribbon into the shape of a bow and secure the center with a piece of jute twine.

I initially kept the ribbon tails long, but ended up cutting them once I put them on the cutting board. I used twine to tie the bow to the handle of the bamboo skewer cutting board.

Bring it all together

I pulled the leaves off the lamb’s ear greenery sprays and hot glued them just underneath the right side of the bow.

Then, all I did was drape the bead string over the handle of the bamboo skewer DIY cutting board, and I was finished making this adorable DIY decor!
