Christmas season is in full swing around here. I have a list of
projects a mile long. I’m sure I’ll get to some, but some just
don’t matter 🙂 It’s like one of those things, you get your list so
long and feel like you can’t do it and stress over all of it. Well,
I’m just letting go this Christmas and keeping things pretty
simple. This wood slice wreath is one of those crafts that I knew I
wanted to do and wouldn’t take a long time doing it. I’m excited to
share this tutorial with the Christmas I DIYed That blog hop hosted
from Noting Grace. These ladies are sharing some wonderful
Christmas inspiration. Be sure to check them all out (links
This wreath serious took about 5 minutes to make. You just need a
few things to make it:
Wood discs (about 3-4″ in diameter. I bought my here)
Large bowl or plate
Ribbon or bow
I used 13 pieces as the bottom layer and 13 for the top.
My bowl is about 10″ in diameter. I picked the largest discs and
placed them around the bowl.
Once I had them all in place and lined up how I wanted, I moved the
Then with each of the smaller discs, I placed some hot glue on the
back and put it right on top of where two bottom discs touch.
I did this same process around the whole wreath.
Now that the wreath is made, it’s time to add the accessories.
First up is the bow. I decided to make my own bow out of ribbon I
found at Hobby Lobby. I cut a 14″ piece, then looped it, securing
the ends with hot glue.
Next I cut another 14″ piece, placed the middle on the back of the
looped piece. I then cut about a 4″ piece, folded it in half, and
looped it around both those pieces securing it in place on both
ends with hot glue.
I fluffed it out, and hot glued it onto one of the discs.
Next, I cut 3 pieces of jute at varying lengths.I glued the ends of
each one onto the top of a pine cone. I tied the ends of the jute
I glued the knot of the jute onto the disc behind the bow. I also
did a lazy man’s route of creating a thing to hang the wreath by
hot gluing a two inch piece of jute on both ends to the discs. I
can’t guarantee this will hold it 🙂
I love how simple this wreath is, both in looks and how easy it is
to make. Just lots of hot glue!
It’s been fun playing around with a home for this. I think I have
settled on having it in my front room. What do you think?
I think it goes with the theme in here pretty well.
