Hi friends! Today, I thought I would share a few DIY projects I have made using one of my favorite crafting tools…a jigsaw! Yes, technically it is a power tool, but it is so easy to use, everyone should give it a try.
A jigsaw is the perfect multi purpose tools for a DIYer. They are affordable, and simple to use. I purchased an inexpensive Ryobi jigsaw from Home Depot for less than $30. I also use inexpensive sheets of MDF (medium-density fibre board) for my projects, and my jigsaw cuts them quickly and easily.
Jigsaws have a small, thin blade and are made to easily cut curves. In fact, this curvy frame was the very first project I did with my jigsaw after seeing Stacy’s Funky Frame Tutorial from Not Just a Housewife . I drew a funky shape onto a piece of MDF and just went for it. I sanded, painted, and glazed it and taped an 8×10 picture of our family to the back.
I used my Silhouette machine to cut a big vintage style hello sign out of card stock, then used the card stock as a template for my jigsaw.
With my latest project, I got creative with my jigsaw and some chalkboard paint and made a year round wreath for our front door.
