Mini Wood Slice Wreath

Hi friends! It is time to share my favourite part of holiday decorating – actually, to be honest, I’m not a big holiday decorator (I know, bad blogger, right?)  You will never see my house in a holiday home tour, because I am still struggling to get the Legos and Goldfish off the floor, let alone have a Christmas themed version of everything in my house.  (No offence to those that do – I wish I had the energy or desire, but I don’t!)  However, I do love creating a new wreath to hang on my door for just about every holiday or season.  And this year is no different!

Actually, this year is a little different.  This wreath isn’t much like my usual style – its a very rustic, country glam style.  I absolutely love it (and the style), but I’m usually more of a beach cottage style.  Either way, the neutral tones of this wreath would work with any style, which is probably why I designed it this way.  It’s versatile enough to use year round as well.

If you’d like to make your own version of this wood slice wreath, just follow along and I’ll give you all of the details!

To get started, gather all of your supplies.  For this wood slice wreath, you will need:

  • mini wood slices – cut them up yourself from fallen branches or order them online from Amazon, Etsy, or maybe a local craft store.
  • embroidery hoop – I used a 12″ hoop but you can adjust this to whatever size fits your door/home best.
  • hot glue gun – I love the portability of my cordless glue gun!
  • hot glue sticks
  • ribbon (not pictured, optional) for the bow – I used a burlap textured ribbon from Michaels.

Step 1: Hot glue the mini wood slices to the outside and inside of the hoop.  (Keep the metal piece on for now, but you will remove it later, once there are enough wood slices glued on to keep both pieces of the hoop together.)

Step 2: Use the hot glue again to adhere the wood pieces to the top of the hoop, as shown on the left side of the image below.  Take the metal screw out now if you wish, or keep it in and use that section to hang the ribbon and bow.

Step 3:  Go around the hoop one last time, stick wood slices on top of the last row you worked on.  Place the first piece towards the outside of the wreath, overlapping the join between two slices.  Place the second piece towards the inside of the hoop.  Continue this way, alternating between inside and outside of the hoop until you have completed the circle.

Step 4: Pull off any loose glue strings and wrap the ribbon around the top of your wreath.  (Hint: Use the ribbon to cover any parts you may want to hide!)  Tie a bow with the same ribbon and use hot glue to attach it to the bottom of the ribbon loop.

  1. Wow Sarah, I love your wreath! I’m a bit of a sliced wood addict, strangely! And this wreath perfectly fits into that addiction! Pinning and sharing! It’s awesome to be in this wreath hop with you. :)

    • Thanks Laurie! I have been saving these mini slices since last Christmas, so I’m glad I finally decided on a project. Can’t wait to check out your wreath post too… it was a great hop!

      PS – I hear you’re only a few hours from me! I love finding new people close(ish) to me!

  2. This is so very pretty! Love its simplicity and that black & white bow is fantastic!

  3. I love how simple this is! It could be kept up all fall and winter since it’s not too ‘christmasy’ :)

  4. Love the black and white ribbon against the wood grain – so simple and beautiful!
    Cheers,
    Meagan

  6. So pretty! I love to add a rustic touch to my Christmas decor – this would be perfect.

  7. I so agree with you. It is a simple, elegant and rustic wreath but I will add one more descriptor and that it is fabulous too! Your instructions with the photographs were very clear. It shows that you are a teacher! Well done!

  8. Well done :) The wood is great touch, and I might have to do it myself!

  9. Super cute! Do you have an idea how many slices you used?

    • Hi! I’m not sure how many individual slices, but I would say about half of that large mason jar… if that gives you an idea!
