If you’re a tita and your beloved niece wants a donut wall for her birthday party, you’d try your very best to get that for her. Thank God, Bea is a crafter so she just makes a donut wall, instead of looking around to buy one.
For the cutting list that Bea talks about in the video:
5 pcs 4in x 16in
2 pcs 2in x 23in
3 pcs 2in x 11.5in
Don’t let the name ‘donut wall” throw you off. You can always use this for something else, like your display wall for your earrings, rings, bracelets, and other trinkets.

Using Wood in Your Craft Projects
We’ve done so many DIY videos where we use wood as a material. I have my favorite and it’s this laptop riser.
By now, we know that if we want to avoid having a tech neck, and all other kinds of body pains from sitting too long, we need to get up and move more often, every 30 minutes or so.
Take the pressure off the neck muscles (and the spine discs) by sitting on a chair with good lumbar support, which can lean back by 25 to 30 degrees. The laptop riser helps by bringing the screen up so you can look straight instead of down.
According to world-renowned cervical spine surgeon Dr. Daniel Riew,
When you look down just 45 degrees, your neck muscles are doing the work of lifting an almost 50-pound bag of potatoes.
I do sit for hours for work, so this laptop riser is something that helps me not to look down. Now for getting up every 30 minutes.
Wood Painting 101
This is not a craft project but a tutorial on the proper way to paint wood with two Boysen paint systems—enamel-based and acrylic-based.
It would give you more confidence if you watch this video. Once you understand the painting systems, you can use this on other wood crafts you will be making.
Much like Wood Painting 101, this video is also the ABC on the two different wood staining systems of Boysen, and when to use what.
Wood staining is for crafters who want to show off the beauty of wood and not hide it underneath paint. Especially if you are using quality wood, it is better to stain it rather than hide its beauty under paint.
