It’s finally the most wonderful time of the year! In todays post I will be showing you how to make these DIY wood slice ornaments. I bought the supplies for the ornaments last year but I never got around to making them.
The supplies needed for the ornaments are:
Sharpie color of your choice (I prefer black since it looks more like wood burning)
Ribbon or Twine
Hot glue gun
The bag of wood slices I bought came in a pack of four and they were all different sizes. Depending on what you are writing or drawing on your ornament will determine the size you will use.
The first ornament I made was a deer. It was so simple and I think it turned out so cute. To draw the face I first drew the ears which is a oval shape that is flat on the top. I then drew the U shape for the face and colored it in. The antlers are two Y’s that connect at the bottom. (I’m not the best at describing how to draw this but I’m sure you can see if from the picture).
The next ornament has the phrase let it snow, once I wrote the words I drew snowflakes around the edge. I googled a picture of a snowflake to get an idea of what I was drawing. I then went back and added gold on the snowflakes for some sparkle.
The final ornament I will be showing you how to draw is the nativity scene. I saw this on Pinterest and decided to try it myself. Just to make sure it would turn out right I sketched it on a napkin first.
Start by drawing the shelter part by making two angled lines come together in a point. Then to small lines on the sides.
For the people, draw a circle on top of an upside down U shape to make Joseph, a lip like shape to make baby Jesus, and another circle and upside down U shape to make Mary. I then drew a gold star above the manger.
To hang the ornaments I measured a piece of the twine to size then cut it. On the back of the wood I put two dots where the glue should go. I then put a line of glue between to dots.
I then stuck the twine in the glue and sealed it with another layer of glue.
Heres what the finished product looked like! If you recreate this send me a picture on Instagram or Twitter @girlmeetsstyle_ and if you like it share it on Pinterest!
