Old pallets, fruit boxes, unused beams, branches, waste of every shape and size, all of the wood can be recycled to create original DIY creations. For example, with waste pieces, we can make shelves, candle holders, wall organizers, while the twigs transform the mirrors into unique and unmistakable decorative objects. And ideas never cease to amaze. Here are the best to imitate.
Creative wood recycling
One of the most popular projects in the field of creative wood recycling is the fruit boxes, which are now widely used in any field. Here they are proposed raw, assembled together to form a shelf for plants. It is not essential to maintain the order of the image, you can combine them at will depending on the destination space and the number of boxes you have. And of course, you can also paint them after scratching them with sandpaper. In short, there is plenty of room for creativity. Remember that to fix them to each other you will need wood glue.
Mirror with a twig frame
To make a mirror more personal you can use wooden twigs, as long as you love the rustic style. Get a lot of them of more or less similar size. The length will be calculated according to the size of the mirror. Clean them a bit if necessary and start applying them on the mirror frame with strong glue, suitable for both wood and target material. Slowly proceed until the mirror frame is completely covered, then add more branches by gluing them on top of the previous ones until you get the desired result.
From a flat piece of wood, you can make a nice DIY wall lantern. If you love the rustic effect leave it intact, otherwise discard it and paint it with colors suitable for the material. At this point, you have to fix a hook at a certain height. Then get a glass jar with a lid and attach a chain on both sides. Place a candle in the jar and hang the DIY lantern on the hook. The piece of wood so transformed should be hung on the wall in your favorite spot. And nothing prevents you from making other similar ones to be placed next to it.
Vase holder with old window
Even old wooden windows are recycled. In what way? For example, by transforming them into beautiful outdoor vase holders. They need to be removed from the glass, and the jars need to be hooked with a thin rope to the various sections of the window until it is completely filled. You can plant flowers of the same type in the jars in different colors or play with varieties.

Get 4 pieces of wood of the same size. If you don’t have them, you can cut them so that they all have the same length and width. You will need 4 of them, one of which will be painted in your favorite color. Drill a small hole in the center of one of the pieces, then apply the hands on the front, and on the corresponding back add the back of the watch. Combine the various pieces to form a square or rectangle using wood glue. Now all you have to do is add a hook on the back and activate the clock, then hang it on the wall.
