Wood Slice Ornaments: the perfect 30 minutes gift idea that your loved ones will enjoy year after year.
Every year I set up a smaller Christmas tree in the living room that the kids get to decorate with all of their homemade ornaments, school ornaments and fun ornaments we have collected and made over the years. I love to give homemade ornaments as gifts. They are fun, quick, and who doesn’t love something homemade. These little wood slice ornaments can also work as gift tags, which is a fun way to add a personalized touch when wrapping. We decided to make a couple different versions. We made a Santa, Snowman, Elf, and lastly a penguin. I personally love the snowman and santa! All of them were very simple and only required a few steps and supplies!
Supplies for Wood Slice Ornaments:
- Small Wood Slices
- Paint, I personally like to use FolkArt ® Acrylic Paint
- Paint Brushes, I like the variety of this FolkArt Brush Set
- Jute or String
Base paint your wood slices in the colors needed for the design you chose. For our santa ornament I painted the bottom of the wood slice white for his beard and the top red for his hat.
We also added a white pom pom and fluff around the base of his hat. We then finished off by adding a face 🙂
For the snowman we base coated the wood slice white.
We then added a little orange nose. We used the bottom of our paint brush to add two dotted eyes and a dotted smile. I also used a small stencil brush to lightly add pink blush spots on the cheeks of the snowman.
We hot glued a piece of jute to the back of the woodslice and it was all done! They are such a fun gift idea and can easily be made under 30 minutes which makes it a perfect naptime craft!
