Wood has quickly become a popular medium for painting enthusiasts all over. The unique qualities of wooden surfaces make them so fun to paint, and it's nice to break away from canvas painting and try something new. Whether you're looking into starting your first wood painting project or simply need more ideas, we've gathered up some fun wood painting project ideas to help inspire you.

Wood Painting Projects

Wooden surfaces are thicker and have more texture than a standard canvas. This adds extra character to even the simplest designs, like this summer quote art. The wood pallet gives off beach boardwalk vibes that fit so well with this summery design.

Wooden surfaces can also come in a variety of shapes and sizes. This lets you get creative in new ways! Like this mason jar cut-out painted with a gorgeous firefly design. Doesn't this look like summer fun in a jar? Add a wire hanger to turn this into a door hanger or outdoor decoration.

Since they're thicker and stronger than a standard canvas you can add all kinds of accessories to wood. Play around with adding dimension or texture with other craft materials. This peppermint door hanger is a standard round shape but the tulle makes it look exactly like a wrapped peppermint!

This quote board uses wooden letters and flowers to add a springtime element to a painted sign. Try adding your own personal touches to a wooden painting for something that is completely and uniquely you!
