Do you have scrap metal lying around the house, or even in a corner of your garden?

What about a well-stocked box of welding equipment gathering dust in your garage?

We come bearing good news!




There are many awesome things you can make using these and we’ve decided to share 7 of our favourites with you. Pick something off this list or stretch your creative muscles and come up with your own awesome project.

Before You Get Started

It is important to do a stock take of what tools you need to make sure you have all the necessary equipment to execute your project properly. Learn more by reading detailed reviews at WeldingChamps

There’s nothing more annoying than starting a project, getting super into it and realising halfway through that you don’t have everything you need. This prompts a mad dash to your nearest hardware store, am I right?

Thankfully in today’s age, you can get all the welding equipment you could possibly need online.

Remember: as with all things DIY, the proper safety precautions need to be taken.

Now let’s get started.

Kids Toys

I know what you’re thinking: Scrap metal and kids’ toys? It’s true, the two don’t usually co-exist in the same sentence. But some examples of truly awesome kids’ toys you can make include:

  • Cars, trucks, trains & digger loaders
  • Figurines of their favourite characters
  • Windmills & other buildings
  • Animals & insects

Garden Art

Metal garden art is growing fast in popularity and gives your garden a unique aesthetic. Instead of forking out your hard-earned cash and buying someone else’s creation, why not make your own?

Some of the most commonly featured metal art in gardens are:

  • Animals
  • Plants
  • Garden stakes
  • Masks
  • Arches

Bar Area

A welded bar area is insanely popular right now, residentially and commercially, and for good reason. They are just so cool. It is an ambitious project to undertake, so make sure you can dedicate enough time to getting this done properly.

Garden Bench

A garden bench is surprisingly easy to make with the right welding equipment and we love this idea because it serves a practical purpose.

Funky Picture Frames

Preserve your photos or your kids’ art in a unique and creative way. Making a frame is also a fun project to get the kids involved in.

Candle Holders & Lamp Stands

Making candle holders and lamp stands is quite easy. This also doesn’t demand a lot of time and effort, making them perfect for your first project.

Custom Body Jewelry

This one requires a little more finesse, because of the delicate size of these creations.

You can make all sorts of jewellery using your welding equipment, including:

  • Earrings
  • Necklaces
  • Navel rings
  • Nose rings
  • Bracelets

Final Words

Nothing quite compares to the pride of making something yourself. And as you can see, there are loads of things you can make with your welding equipment. You never know; if it turns out you have a knack for it, you could even start up a profitable side business. Working on a project like this can be good fun for the whole family, plus you’re teaching your kid a valuable skill. What do you say, are you ready to make your own awesome creation?
