Scrap Wood Sailboat Ornaments

Diy sailboats from wooden scraps

Recently I made a direction sign for a client and I saved the leftover triangles after cutting the arrows.

I knew they'd be good for something, someday.

Today was the day...

I cut a boat shape from various pieces of scrap wood then glued the triangles and the boat together.

I made a bunch using all different sizes and shapes 
for the boat.

I added a screw eye to the top, a length of jute to hang, 
and a ribbon for the flag.

We live near the water and
I think they'll make great Christmas ornaments  
for my next craft fair.

  1. I think you're absolutely right! I collect ornaments and we love the beach so I think these are great! I buy or make each of my three kids a new ornament each Christmas and they each have at least one boat. Love the soothing color, too.

  2. These are so sweet. They remind me of a little boy's nursery!

  3. How cute are these! Love the colours you choose too!
