DIY: Wood Slice Banner

15 Views
Quick, easy, inexpensive, and often repurposed projects are so my thing.

Off I went to my little slice of heaven…my very own version of Disney World…my very own thrill ride…TJ Maxx. And like always, I hit up the clearance section.
And discovered this.

It’s stuff like this that makes me giddy with excitement!

Someone might see trash. I see something that deserves to be treasured!
These mismatched stacks of wood slices that I assumed were meant to be used as coasters were beat up and calling for some love. I found a stack of 5 and a stack of 2 both marked at $3.00. The pricing didn’t even make sense. And lucky me, the cashier thought the same thing so I got all 7 pieces for $3.oo.  Woot woot!!

I marked the spots where I wanted to drill with a pen and started drilling 2 holes on each slice.

I could have freehanded the letters, but sometimes that just adds stress for me.

I turned to my cheap transfer paper method by finding a font that I liked, printing it and then doing this…

Just flip over any printed paper, give it a good scribble of pencil, flip it back and trace. Get perfect letters every time!

I happened to have a white paint marker on hand so without giving it a second thought, I started to trace and fill in the letters with it. The wood soaked up the paint a lot, so it required me to go back over it about 3 times.

I know you can see the pencil marks still, but seriously, there’s no shame in that. Move on. No one will notice.

All that was left was to string em’ together! My large supply of jute twine to the rescue again!
