easy DIY wood slice wreaths

On Friday night, I got together with some friends to make DIY wood slice wreaths. This project was SO easy and fun! Plus, if you know someone with the right tools, it's totally inexpensive!

These craft rings
Assorted sizes of wood slices
Wood glue
Hot glue gun/hot glue
Decorative accents

First, drill a hole where you would like to put a ribbon to hang your wreath and attach the ribbon. This will ultimately be hidden behind the second layer of wood slices. Next, lay out your wood on the ring to make sure you have it the way you'd like it. One at a time, apply wood glue to the center of your wood slice and hot glue on both sides of the wood glue, then affix to the frame. Repeat until the bottom layer of wood slices are glued onto the frame. Next, lay out the second row, placing the new wood slices centered over where the two beneath it meet. Repeat the glue process until the second row of wood slices is glued on. The wood glue is for longevity and the hot glue is for transport/to hold everything in place while the wood glue sets. Decorate with whatever embellishments you would like and voila! The cutest door wreath. Since a friend had a wood mill and was able to cut the wood slices for us, this project cost $9/wreath.

As an added bonus, you can use any leftover wood slices and some stencils to make ornaments!
