Momma Gets Crafty :: DIY Lifesize Jenga

DIY Lifesize Jenga

Crafting is my jam. I love everything about it. And I’d love to take it a step further and venture into woodworking. But I am learning that some things you’re really good at … and others you’re … well, not so good at. Woodworking is one of those things I am not good at. However, this DIY was so easy that I am convinced that anyone could do it.

On Halloween night, we threw together a last minute gathering and had about 24 hours to prep. We wanted to get a giant Jenga, but being the frugal family that we are, we decided we could make our own for half the price.

Pinterest to the rescue!

There were plenty of tutorials out there, and after reading a few, we decided to wing it. We headed to Home Depot and picked up 8 – 2×4’s and some sand paper. Are you sure you’re ready for just how easy this is? The only tools that we used were a handheld sander and a saw.


Step One:

Cut your 2×4’s into 10 inch pieces.

Step Two:

Sand all the pieces down so they aren’t scraping or cutting you.

Step Three:

Set up Jenga and play!

Eventually, I plan on staining all of the pieces, but for now, who really has time for all of that??

Danielle is married to Ryan and together they have four beautiful babies. They're raising Lexi, Abram, Sutton and Beckham on the bayou in Crown Point. She is a self-proclaimed hot mess, Jesus-loving, homeschooling, Netflix binging, crafting and party planning stay at home mom. Sutton was born with achondroplasia dwarfism so advocating and raising awareness is important to her. Most nights once the kids are asleep you will find her staying up way too late to enjoy the quiet that happens after four kids.
