If you have been working on a wood project of any kind, chances are you have a few pieces of scrap wood lying around after its completion. Rather than throwing away a perfectly good piece of wood when your project is finished, you can use this wood scrap to make some very easy and beautiful home decorations.
Stand up a long piece of scrap and drill a hole in the top end. Now put a walkway light into the hole. Repeat 2 to 3 times and fasten the pieces together for a particularly interesting outdoor standing lamp for your deck or patio.
Drill holes along the length of the piece, spacing evenly of course, and put some votive candle holders in the holes. You can let the candle holder sit on a surface or fasten it to a wall.
As above, drill holes along the length of the scrap, but this time plan to put a few small cylindrical vases in the scrap to make a particularly nice floral arrangement.
