Hello there! Recently I was lucky enough to have my father in law agree to cut some wood slices for me, and while my little sickie was napping this morning I finished off some projects.
I used hot glue to attach a loop of twine to the back of each slice. After lightly sanding, I just drew on the design I wanted. The rustic nature of these ornaments means you don’t have to be an artist- a rough design is just perfect!
I was also inspired to create a wreath from the more oval shaped wood slices that my father in law provided. I arranged a ring of oval pieces on the table. Then I hot glued a second layer of oval pieces over the first, making sure that each piece of the second layer sat on top of TWO pieces in the first layer. Finally, I used more twine to attach an existing pine swag to it to dress up my new wood slice wreath.
I had a few wood slices left, so I used them to adorn a wall mounted basket shelf that I use for mittens and hats in the winter. I labelled one with an “A” for Alex, one with an “M” for Madeleine and then two more with “hats” and “mittens” that we share.
Of course I had to add some sprigs of evergreen to the wood slices to dress them up.
I’m so grateful that my father in law took the time to cut all those slices for me. I did my best to put every single one to use!
