I was given the birch wood logs from Silk Plants Direct to review, but all opinions are my own. 
It’s time for another craft destash post! Every month a group of bloggers are challenged by C’mon Get Crafty to create a new craft or project from their own stash of goodies! This month, I created this Snowman Wood Slice Ornament and a Sparkly Wood Slice Ornament to make use of the birch logs I received last year from Silk Plants Direct.

If you aren’t familiar with the Monthly Craft Destash, it’s hosted by C’mon Get Crafty and the participants are challenged to create a project from their existing craft stash. If necessary, we can spend up to $10 to complete our projects, but for this Snowman Wood Slice Ornament, I spent ZERO dollars! So, let’s get to it!

How to:

Painted Wood Slices for Snowman Wood Slice Ornament

  • Paint the center of the wood slice with white chalk paint, leaving about 1/4″ distance from the edge. Let dry.

Add eye hook to sparkly wood slice ornament

  • Add the screw-in eye hook to the top of the wood slice. If it’s hard to screw in, use a drill to start the hole.
  • Cut a long piece of twine to hang the ornament. String through the eye hook and tie.

Snowman wood slice ornament face

  • Paint the nose with orange paint or paint pen.
  • Draw on the face with permanent black pen.
  • Optional – Using darker orange paint and a toothpick,  add carrot stripes on the nose.

Snowman wood slice ornament bow

  • Make a bow from ribbon and glue it to the bottom of the wood slice.
  • Stop here or continue on to create a hat.

Snowman Hat

  • Decide the height of the hat and cut the cardboard to that height + 3/8″.
  • Glue black felt onto the cardboard, making one side flush with the cardboard (this is the bottom of the hat) and one side go past the edge. Glue the felt over the edge, towards the inside of the hat.
  • This should be done on the side where the felt is flush with the cardboard. Press the hat flat and cut two 3/8″ slits on each side of the side creases that are the same width apart as the width of the wood slice.
  • Use the remaining cardboard to cut an oval shape for the top of the hat.
  • Cut the oval cardboard in the center of one side. Open and cover with black felt.
  • Tricky part – Push the felt covered oval into the top of the hat. Squeeze the hat shape and add a small bit of glue on the hat top edge to glue into place. Do one side of the hat top at a time. Snowman wood slice ornament hat
  • Glue hat top onto the wood slice.
  • Cut cardboard for the brim of the hat and glue black felt to cover both sides completely.
  • Glue brim on to cover the bottom of the hat.
  • Optional – Use regular craft glue and add some fake snow and chunky glitter onto the top of the hat.

  1. Adorable – I will definitely try to make this guy one day! And thanks for sharing the screw-in hook idea; I hot-glued mine but I don’t know how long that will last. This hook looks like a better idea!

  2. So cute, Erlene! You did a wonderful job painting the face! What a great way to use up spare craft items. Thanks for sharing at out holiday link party. Pinning to my Christmas board.

  3. This is adorable. The bow and the carrot nose are a niche touch!! I have been looking for some craft projects to do with my children. I will definitely add this to my list.

  4. I like the idea of having unique ornaments on my Christmas tree. The other wood slice ornament with the text is also very adorable and they are a good match. Thank you for this inspiration.
