Day #3 of Christmas Decorations is perhaps the easiest decoration I have ever made. I have seen so many super cute wood slice ornaments all over Pinterest and knew they would be a great addition to my tree.
I am not artistic at all….I mean stick people can sometimes be an artistic stretch for me at times. Because of this I knew I would never be happy with anything that I might try to freehand. Then I saw the monogram style one and it I knew that rubber stamps were the way to go. Here are my Pinsperations…the last one is a new one I found while working on this post so I might need to make one of these too……
| One | Two | Three |
As always…a trip to Hobby Lobby was in order and I found everything I needed…..and some of it was on sale….Yay!! I found blank wood slice ornaments in a package of 2 for $3.99 and they were half off, but they only had 1 package left….darn! Then I headed to the wood aisle and found some individual wood slices for $2.99 each. I used my coupon for one of them and then paid full price for a couple more. These didn’t holes in the top to attach a hanger so the Hubs was enlisted to take care of that job. Then I went to the rubber stamping aisle and found a cute Christmas rubber stamp for half off. I had no idea what type of ink pad to buy so after considering my options I went with one that said it was a pigment ink pad that was permanent and opaque…sounded good to me! I think it was about $5.99 and half off so no coupon needed there.
I took my haul home and went to work stamping my new ornaments. Once they were dry I had the Hubs drill holes in the ones that needed them and that was it…..seriously….couldn’t be much easier! I added some twine loops to the ones that the Hubs had drilled. Here they are…
Here they are on my tree…
I have some extra Birch logs left over from another project I will be sharing soon so I might hade the Hubs slice some of them up and make the banner above and a few of the monogram ornaments. How cure would those be as tags on gifts??!!??
Have a Great One All!
