Woodworking DIY: Wooden Star Art Tutorial

This wooden star wall art is a simple but elegant DIY wood art project that you can customize almost any way that you want. All this really needs is wood, glue, paint, stain and some tools. You don’t need a lot of experience to put this one together but the results are something beautiful that you can hang or display on a shelf.

Materials and Tools

The materials and tools listed below have links of products I have used.

  1. ⅝” Plywood 
  2. 1”x2” – 8’ in length
  3. Paint and Stain of your choice – the one pictured is white matte paint with dark walnut stain.
  4. Wood Glue
  5. 1” Brad Nails
  6. Foam brush 
  7. Staining Rag
  8. Brad Nailer (Optional – a hammer can be used instead)
  9. Orbital Sander (Optional)
  10. 120 Grit Sandpaper
  11. Mitre Saw
  12. Circular Saw (optional – Home Depot can cut the plywood to your desired length)

Cut List

  1. Cut the plywood, with a circular saw, to 12”x12”. If you do not have a circular saw, you could get Home Depot to cut it to size for you, super easy, and free of charge!
  2. With a miter saw cut 8 pieces of 1”x2” to a length of 2.5” with 45 ends and 4 pieces of 1”x2” for the frame, as shown below. 
Cut List


  1. Sand plywood and 1”x2” until smooth.
  2. Paint the plywood and stain the 1”x2”.
  3. Once the paint and stain is dry, mark the middle of the plywood with a pencil, and glue the 1”x2” pieces to the plywood.
  4. Place a scrap piece of cardboard or wood on top and something heavy to clamp the 1”x2”’s to the plywood.
  5. Glue one frame piece at a time, and attach to the plywood with a brad nailer.
  6. Attach your preferred hanger of choice, hang your art, and admire your hard work!
  7. Comment a picture of your beautiful work, or share on social media with #CreativelyConstructedAtHome
