There is something so incredibly fun about creating with scraps. It can be the ultimate challenge for your creative side and it’s a great way to use your resources; especially after a home reno or project build. These rustic scrap wood Christmas projects are the perfect examples of the amazing pieces you can create with wood that otherwise may be headed to the trash.
There are so many amazing projects ideas out there and I created the THE WOODSHOP to help get wood into peoples hands that may not otherwise have the tools or the wood pile to use for projects just like these!

We have that covered too! Just hop on the waitlist for when we open the doors to our private community called THE WOODSHOP!
What can I make with the November Scrap Wood Box?
1. Stamped Ornaments
This months box was a “Rustic Christmas” theme.
When planning for this box began, I knew immediately that I would want to include some type of reclaimed ornament. These scrap pieces of trim were my inspiration. I love the simplicity and nothing is more rustic than reclaimed wood, am I right
A little paint and stamping and you’re all set.
2. Wood Block Presents
Wood block presents are one of my favorite Christmas projects to make and these reclaimed pieces were the perfect fit for this “Rustic Christmas” Scrap Wood Project Box They are chunky and oh so adorable. Think about displaying them as a vignette or around a small tree.
Keep in in mind these can be used to create other things like ornaments or candle sticks. I want to encourage you to think outside the box when exploring your options with the wood in your box.
3. Rustic Christmas Trees
Next up, was a set of beautifully Rustic Tree that can be purchased completed but I quickly that while they were cute, they also came with a hefty price tag. With the right tools and a some planning this look can easily be achieved on your own. This months box came with a set of 3, ready to assemble trees for you to craft and design to you liking!
4. Spindle Ornaments
This is perhaps my favorite project inspiration for the wood in the November box! Spindles and various wood turnings have a special place in my heart, and if I’m being completely honest, I’m not entirely sure why. In tune with this months Rustic Christmas theme, I thought these wood turnings would be the perfect addition to the box! Country Design Style did a beautiful job of staining and sanding her pieces to look so perfectly rustic, don’t you think?
I hope you feel inspired for all the amazing things you can create with scrap wood! Whether you’re looking for wood or a new set of skills, check out THE WOODSHOP and come create with me!
