Many craft stores carry unfinished wood products that are ideal for wood crafting. You can turn a simple box or frame into a one-of-a-kind masterpiece that everyone you know will admire. These crafts can make great gifts for your significant other, friends or family. There are no limitations as to what you can create with a blank wood item.

Rose Covered Frame

Turn a blank wooden frame into a rose masterpiece. Purchase a blank picture frame, any size. Paint the picture frame the same colour as your roses. Allow the paint to dry completely before continuing. Using a hot glue gun glue the roses onto the frame covering the entire frame except the area where the picture will be. Glue rhinestones around the edge of the frame for added sparkle.

Recipe Box

This unfinished box becomes a one-of-a-kind recipe box in this craft project. This box is perfect for anyone who enjoys cooking or baking. Paint the box, inside and out, with the white paint. The white paint will act as a base coat and make the next colour brighter. Paint the box the colour of your choice. Allow to dry completely before continuing. Paint designs on the recipe box or use stickers, wooden letters or markers. Apply an even coat of Modge Podge to seal the paint and designs. Allow the recipe box to dry for three to four hours before placing your recipes inside.

Holiday Door Hanger

Turn a blank door hanger into a holiday treat. Apply a coat of white paint to the front and back of the door hanger. Turn a piece of holiday scrapbook paper over so the wrong side is facing up and trace the door hanger. Cut the traced door hanger out and apply a thin coat of glue to the door hanger. Place the traced door hanger evenly onto the wooden door hanger. Apply a thin coat of Modge Podge. Allow the door hanger to dry for three to four hours. Glue wooden holiday decorations onto the door hanger.

Decorative Trinket Box

Turn this unfinished trinket box into a decorative masterpiece. Spray paint the trinket box with one coat of primer paint and two coats of white glossy paint. Allow the box to dry between coats. Use a stencil to paint floral designs on all sides of the box. Spray paint five wooden knobs with metallic silver paint. Glue four knobs to the bottom of the box; these will be the feet of the box. Then glue the last knob to the top of the box. You now have a decorative box to store all of your jewellery or small prized possessions in.
