Christmas Craft Ideas Using MDF

Christmas Craft Ideas Using MDF

Christmas is fast approaching and soon it will be time to put the decorations on the tree and start thinking about Christmas gifts that a friend or member of the family HASN'T got already - tricky eh?

Well to save your brain power thinking of present ideas and potentially double buying for someone you love, we thought we would provide you with some Christmas craft ideas that you can create using MDF that would make a really special and personal gift for somebody.

Here are just some of the ways in which you can use MDF to create personalised gifts...and remember, you can paint, draw or write on MDF too!!

  • Individual Initials - you could spell out someone's name or create their first initial such as the picture above. You could even drill a hole at the top of your initial and hang some ribbon from it to make a Christmas decoration
  • Models - from aeroplanes to toy cars, the possibilities are endless when it comes to creating models out of MDF
  • Name Plaques - rather than creating individual letters, why not put your calligraphy skills to the test and create a name plaque that is joined up as one word?
  • Quotes - or why not take this a step further and use MDF to create your special someone's favourite quotes using calligraphy so they can hang it on the wall
  • Christmas Countdown - not necessarily a gift but you could cut out a reindeer for example and use a bit of chalkboard paint to create your very own Christmas countdown
  • Signs - got a friend who has developed their garden shed into a workshop or perhaps a teenager who would like a sign on their door? Why not use MDF and pyrography to create a individual sign for their space 

There are just some ideas in which you can use MDF as Christmas gifts this year but really, the possibilities with this material are endless!
