DIY Woodland Animals Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments

These really fun ornaments are probably worth $25 a piece. No, really they are. Let me tell you why.

I've been wanting to try a fun wood slice project for a while and I thought ornaments would be perfect. I found them at Joanns for like 4 for $2 and almost bought them. But then I realized we had some thick sticks out back that I realized would be perfect.

So I did what I always do, I asked my husband if he would cut some for me. He obliged and I went out back with him to pick out a good piece of wood. However, just after cutting 4 pieces with the miter saw, he the blade hit a really bad knot in the wood and wood went flying.

Long story short, he broke his finger and we went to the ER which cost us roughly $100. So, they ended up being $25 a piece.

I felt pretty much terrible and didn't do anything with the wood slices for a long time. But now I did and they are hanging on our tree. They will forever be a tribute to my husbands finger. I guess something worse could have happened.

  1. These. Are. Awesome. My husband cut some slices for me this year, but they turned a weird color, maybe from the saw? Anyway, I love the look of yours and it's awesome that you used contact paper with the Silhouette to make the stencil! I have not tried that yet, do you have any awesome tips or tricks for doing that? Sorry about your hubby's injury. :(


We LOVE hearing what you think. Thank you for your sweet comments!
