Among the Three Angels adoptive “mamas in waiting” we decided to do a handmade ornament exchange. We drew names and I decided to make DIY Wood Slice Chalkboard Ornaments.
I love the trend of using log slices for different projects, so I got a log from our wood pile and cut a slice off using our miter saw. If you don’t have access to logs or a miter saw they’re pretty affordable to purchase here. *contains affiliate link*
Then I drilled a hole through the wood slice.
Next I used Chalkboard Paint to paint a black surface onto the slices.
Thankfully my friend Kathryn was there who does some AMAZING chalkboard designs. Without her help mine would have looked like a kindergarten drawing!
I ended up making one to send for my exchange, and two to hang on our tree!
Then I just strung some red ribbon through the ornaments to hang them.
If you need a simple handmade Christmas gift these DIY wood slice chalkboard ornaments are the perfect solution! They’d also make a great backdrop for a baby’s handprint or footprint.
