These wood slice Christmas ornaments were quick and easy to create, and I am sure that you can do it yourself in less than five minutes… well, maybe a little longer if you include drying time. They turn out really rustic and cute, and make great gift toppers as well!

Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments Tutorial
- wood slices (mine were white pine, I think)
- black ultra fine marker
- gold (or other holiday color) paint style pen
- sealer of some sort – poly, mod podge, etc.
- eye pins
To start, draw a design on your wood slice with the black marker. I just freehanded a few Christmas phrases like “oh holy night” and “for onto us a child is born”. I made a little edge on the left hand side of each letter to make it a bit fancy. (If you don’t trust your hand writing, why not try a stamp?) I also freehanded some doodled stars.
Next, I went back with my gold paint pen and colored in the edges on the letters and the stars.
Once your ink is totally dry, apply a thin layer of sealer all around. Let the sealer dry, and then twist an eye pin into the top of your wood disc. Use this to tie a pretty ribbon or piece of twine which you can use to hang the ornament.
That’s all there is to it! Aren’t these a great way to jazz up a wrapped gift? You could make super cute monogram ones that would double as a tag and an ornament! (I just thought of that right then, or I would have made one of those too!)
Do you have any quick and easy gift ideas up your sleeve this year?
