Wood Slice Ornaments Supplies
All you really need is a few extras you might not already have on hand for this craft. You can keep it basic if you want or get fancy like I did with added ribbon or embellishments to your wood slice ornaments.
The ribbon, wire holly leaves and wood slices I got at Hobby Lobby. My wood slices did not have holes so my husband drilled holes into them for me.
The mod podge is optional. I like to use it to seal my painting at after it dries. It gives it extra protection and a little shine, but it’s not necessary.
Also if you watch my Youtube video below, you’ll see I use the white gel pen for the smaller writing on the joy ornament and I make little snowflakes on the penguin ornament. It was easier to do the smaller details with the gel pen.
DIY Wood Slice Ornaments Directions
Here are step by step instructions. You can watch my Youtube video below for more detail.
- Lightly draw the design you plan on doing in pencil onto your ornament.
2. Paint the ornaments, stopping to let sections dry so you don’t mix paint colors.
3. Draw any extra small details with a marker or gel pen.
4. After about 10 minutes or so when the paint is completely dry, brush on a layer of mod podge.
5. After the mod podge is dry in about 5 minutes, put your string or ribbon through the hole and knot it.
6. Add any bows or extras.

Last year my husband and I each painted an ornament as a holiday craft to do together. He painted a car he wants to buy and I painted little christmas gnomes. It’s a great tradition to paint ornaments every year!
