Wood slice ornaments are so each to make and add a touch of rustic charm to your Christmas tree. They are customizable too. Add the names of your children, a favorite verse, or a picture. You can cut your own wood slices or buy them ready made. Either way, wood slice ornaments are an inexpensive Christmas craft.
Wood Slice Ornaments
I was tasked with making 75 ornaments for the kids at so these seemed like the most cost effective choice.
Vinyl or Stickers
I got some branches from our yard and cut them with the miter saw so they were around ½ inch thick. You can also buy wood slices at craft stores or on Amazon. Sand the front if they are rough at all. Use a fine grit sandpaper like 220 grit.
Using a flat brush, paint the center of the wood slice, leaving a border around the edge.
Once the paint is dry, drill a hole towards to top.
Place the sticker or vinyl in the center of the wood slice. If you have a steady hand and good handwriting, you could also use a marker or paint pen to write the words. I used metallic gold vinyl and I love how it shimmers.
I used faux leather to string the ornaments but string or jute would work as well. I liked how the leather matched the rustic feel of the wood slices.
Here a video of the process.
