Hi Friends!  Today is all about Christmas ornaments…more specifically, these easy and inexpensive DIY wood slice Christmas ornaments. I love to create my own ornaments each year. Last year, I created these rustic DIY Pinecone Ornaments.  Keeping with that farmhouse feel, this year I am sharing an easy and inexpensive painted ornament using wood slices.


Last spring, my friend, Michelle (Our Crafty Mom) and I attended the Vintage Market Days® together.  While we were there, I had purchased a bag of wood slices, in a variety of sizes. When I was recently going through my craft stash, I found them and thought these rustic, natural wood slices would make great Christmas ornaments.

If you would like to make these ornaments, you can easily purchase pre-drilled wood slices here.




  • Wood slice ornaments
  • Chalk paint
  • Stencil
  • Chalk Art chalk paste
  • Twine
  • Ribbon


I began by drilling a small hole at the top of each one.

Then, using Annie Sloan chalk paint, I painted one side of each wood slice.  I used the colors Graphite and Paris Grey.

I love that chalk paint dries so quickly and cleans up so easily!

Once the paint was dry, I used my stencils and Chalk Art chalk paste from A Maker’s Studio to personalize these ornaments.

To one, I added a festive message and to the other, I added my daughter’s initial.


Finally, just thread the twine through the hole and add a festive ribbon.  Such a quick and easy project!
