1 Supply 3 Projects: Wood Veneer - Part 3


We're wrapping up this 3-part series with a ridiculously easy veneer pendant!

Be sure to check out parts 1 and 2!

Try This - Wood Veneer Pendant

Veneer Pendant 1
Materials:  12" Threaded Metal Rod, 2 Washers, 2 End Caps, Hole Punch, String, 14 - 15" Veneer Strips

You can find the metal rods and washers/end caps at the hardware store.  These rods are about $1 a piece, so you can easily and cheaply make lots of these for a big impact.

Veneer Pendant 2
Directions:  Punch a hole just large enough for the rods in each end of each veneer strip.

Veneer Pendant 3
On the end of the rod, place the washer, all the veneer strips, and the end cap.

Veneer Pendant 4
Spread the strips out evenly around the rod.

Veneer Pendant 5
At the opposite end of the rod, place the other washer, the opposite end of each of the veneer strips, and the other end cap.  The most outside strip on the first end should be the most inside strip on this end.  In other words, the last one on on the first end should be the first one on on this end.  Make sense?  I think so. Just wrap a string between the end cap and the strips and hang.

See, uber easy!  You can make a bunch of these super quickly.  Make 'em in various lengths and circumferences by varying the length of the rod and the length of the strips relative to the rod.  You could spray paint one side of the strips and have a little peak of color from the inside.  I imagine these looking super cool on patio or pergola with some twinkle lights.  Or a cluster of them hanging in the corner of a room.  How would you use them?

  1. do you paint these with acrylic paint or spray paint, or do you just leave them natural? Cute.

    1. I just left them natural, but I'm guessing spray paint would work well. Not sure about the acrylic. It might just sort slide/scrape right off.

  2. I like this idea. How do you think it would hold up as a lamp pendant? You think it could withstand the heat?

    1. This is iron-on veneer, so it would probably work fine with the heat. I just couldn't easily come up with a construction that would accommodate a light bulb in the middle.

  3. I like how this looks simple to do! I might have to give it a try!

    1. It's super simple. Each one is maybe a 10 minute project.

  4. What a cute project! I love it so much that I decided to feature it in our roundup of patio crafts! Check it out here: http://www.favecraftsblog.com/outdoor-patio-crafts/

    Have a great day!
