DIY Wooden Slice Ornaments

30 Minutes

Giving gifts doesn’t have to be costly. These DIY Wooden Slice Ornaments are practically free and take only a few minutes to make!

I made these wooden slice ornaments from a branch in my yard! My hubby had previously cut down a tree and stacked it in our wood pile, so I helped myself to a piece and got busy crafting

Lets Make It Together!

1. Cut disc slices 

Using a circular saw cut your branch into 1/2″ thick discs

2. Drill holes

Using an electric drill with 1/4′ drill bit, drill one hole in each disc

3. Pick out your paint colors.

I used my favorite paint, Dixie Belle Chalk Paint in Kudzu (green), Caviar (black) and Cotton (white). I didn’t have a red so I used an acrylic paint in red that I had on hand.

4. Outline with a pencil your paint marks
5. Paint!
6. Hang them or wrap them up and gift away!

I love the way they turned out…and I love even more that they were super cheap!
