Coastal Anchor Wall Decor DIY




    One of my goals for this year was to improve my building/woodworking skills. I recently purchased a jig saw and let me tell you, I'm loving this thing! If you're unfamiliar with jig saws, they're a handheld, electric tool that lets you cut shapes (like curves) out of wood. They're relatively easy to use, especially if you're cutting out something large with a simple shape. I keep seeing cut-out wall decor in all the home stores. Usually the prices hover around $100 for a basic, painted design. Ever the DIYer, I thought "I can make that!".

     I decided to make a distressed anchor to go with my boho, beach house decor. This was a really fun DIY project, and once you get the hang of the jig saw, the possibilities are endless!

Download the anchor template. You can resize it with photo editing software. I resized mine to 30 inches high. Bring it to Staples and get an engineer print. Engineer prints are very large, inexpensive (only a few dollars) black and white prints. Cut out the anchor and tape it to the wood.
