5 Ways to Craft with Wood Slices

I like to keep things cozy in the fall and winter, with warm plaids, soft textiles, and touches of rustic wood.  These tartan plaid pillows with wood slice buttons are the perfect example of how I try to transition to fall and winter rustic decor. Come to think of it, wood slices are the perfect material for crafts to decorate your home.  They are really versatile–I’ve found lots of ways to use them (see them here)!  Check out these other creative wood slice crafts I found on five other blogs.

 

 

1. Frame Them

An Ikea mirror gets an artistic, woodsy touch with wood slices cut from fallen branches at That’s My Letter.  An inexpensive and easy way to upcycle your yard trash and get a designer look!

 

2.  Embroider Them
