How to Make Bamboo Skewer DIY Farmhouse Decor

Start by removing the puzzle pieces from the Dollar Tree wood puzzle board and turn the board over so you have a flat surface in front of you.

Then, pour your Apple Barrel burnt umber acrylic paint into a small mixing bowl and stir in a bit of the territorial beige to lighten the brown.

Paint the mixture onto the back and sides of the puzzle board. Then, go over the surfaces with a wet wipe to remove any excess paint.

Next, I hot glued the bamboo skewers onto the back of the puzzle board. They’re going to hang over the edges of the puzzle board, and that is okay! We’ll trim them later!

Once I had all the bamboo skewers hot glued in place, I sanded over the top of them to remove any dried glue from the top of the skewers.

Make sure you let the glue dry completely, then cut the excess skewers from around the puzzle board. Some of the skewers might try to pull up, so just glue them back down if they do.

Then, I painted the paint mixture from before onto the bamboo skewers. I used a wet wipe to smudge the paint and get an uneven finish on the skewers.

I went back over the skewers in random places with just burnt umber acrylic paint to add some detail to them.

Bring it all together

Next, you need to cut the pattern out of the Hobby Lobby plastic placemat. Hot glue the Dollar Tree puzzle board onto the cardboard, but don’t cut the excess cardboard off yet.

Hot glue the mop string around the outer edge of the puzzle board, then hot glue the Dollar Tree nautical rope around that. You want to be able to see both the mop string and nautical rope.

Once the glue is dry, go ahead and cut and remove the excess cardboard. Then, thread your wood beads onto the jute twine to make the hanger.

When you’re happy with the size of your hanger, tie a knot to create a sort of bead bracelet. Hot glue the ends of the twine to the back of the DIY farmhouse wall decor.

Lastly, hot glue the placemat cutout to the front center of your bamboo skewers, and hot glue four half wood beads (one in each corner) to the front of the decor!
