Create this wood slice wreath and impress the neighbours with your fancy new door decor this holiday! This easy DIY is sure to be a favorite.
This wreath isn’t much like my usual style – its a very rustic, country glam style. I absolutely love it (and the style), but I’m usually more of a beach cottage style. Either way, the neutral tones of this wreath would work with any style. It’s also versatile enough to use year round.
If you’d like to make your own version of this wood slice wreath, just follow along and I’ll give you all of the details!
Wood Slice Wreath Supplies:
To get started, gather all of your supplies. For this wood slice wreath, you will need:
- mini wood slices – cut them up yourself from fallen branches or order them online from Amazon, Etsy, or maybe a local craft store.
- embroidery hoop (Michaels / Amazon) – I used a 12″ hoop
- hot glue gun – I love the portability of my cordless glue gun!
- hot glue sticks
- ribbon (not pictured, optional) for the bow – I used a burlap textured ribbon from Michaels.
How to Make a Wood Slice Wreath
Step 1: Hot glue the mini wood slices to the outside and inside of the hoop. (Keep the metal piece on for now. You will remove it later, once there are enough wood slices glued on to keep both pieces of the hoop together.)
Step 2: Use the hot glue again to adhere the wood pieces to the top of the hoop, as shown on the left side of the image below. Take the metal screw out now if you wish, or keep it in and use that section to hang the ribbon and bow.
Step 3: Go around the hoop one last time, stick wood slices on top of the last row you worked on. Place the first piece towards the outside of the wreath, overlapping the join between two slices. Place the second piece towards the inside of the hoop. Continue this way, alternating between inside and outside of the hoop until you have completed the circle.
Step 4: Pull off any loose glue strings and wrap the ribbon around the top of your wreath. (Hint: Use the ribbon to cover any parts you may want to hide!) Tie a bow with the same ribbon. Use hot glue to attach it to the bottom of the ribbon loop.

I love how simple this is! It could be kept up all fall and winter since it’s not too ‘christmasy’ 🙂
Thanks! That’s what I was going for! It’s a little unlike my bold colorful style, but I like it too 🙂
Love the black and white ribbon against the wood grain – so simple and beautiful!

I really like your wreath, so pretty and simple and rustic -everything I love.
Thanks! I was wondering if it was too simple – I’m not usually good with streamlining!

So pretty! I love to add a rustic touch to my Christmas decor – this would be perfect.
Thank you! I can’t wait to head over and check out your post as well!
I so agree with you. It is a simple, elegant and rustic wreath but I will add one more descriptor and that it is fabulous too! Your instructions with the photographs were very clear. It shows that you are a teacher! Well done!
Well done 🙂 The wood is great touch, and I might have to do it myself!
Super cute! Do you have an idea how many slices you used?
Hi! I’m not sure how many individual slices, but I would say about half of that large mason jar… if that gives you an idea!
