Wood Slice Snowman Ornament

Hi everyone! I am Keri, the sugar-fueled, paint-covered author over at Shaken Together! I am so thrilled to be participating in Stephanie Lynn’s Handmade Ornament Series! At our house (despite the crazy warm December weather in Florida), Christmas is in full swing! Our home is decorated, the lights are hung and the eggnog is made … I just absolutely LOVE this time of year! And today, I am sharing one of the handmade ornaments that is hanging on our tree …
a rustic wood slice snowman ornament!!

Woodslice Ornament
This year, I am sort of obsessed with rustic, warm and cozy. Think pine cones, woodland creatures, cable knit sweaters and hot chocolate by the fire! And this sweet little snowman with a plaid flannel scarf fits right in!! So, here is what you’ll need to add this rustic wood slice snowman to your tree:

The Merry Materials

Homemade Wooden Slice Ornament
I found a bag of these mini wood slices (the smallest round slices are about the size of a quarter) at my local teacher supply store but you could also cut thin slices from sticks in your back yard.

The How-To

I selected three wood slices in gradually larger sizes and glued a craft stick to the back of them to hold them all together. (Yes, I broke it – I couldn’t find my snips, ha ha! You don’t have to go all Hulk smash on yours!) Then, I added a knot of silver ribbon with craft glue and allowed everything to dry.

Once the snowman has dried, you’ll add the scarf and the sparkly snowflake brooch! I used a red and gray plaid flannel scrap for the snowman’s scarf and knotted it between the first and second wood slices. The final touch is the silver snowflake. While the snowflake had adhesive on the back already, I added a dab of craft glue to make it a little more permanent.

I just love seeing this simple little guy (gal?) tucked in the branches of our tree and that snowflake catches the twinkling lights just right! It is right at home with the cinnamon stick icicles and the little wooden nativity!
