Creative Wood Slice Project Ideas

Creative Wood Slice Projects

Slices of branches or tree trunks are all the rage! It’s no wonder why there are so many uses for these rustic yet beautiful cross-sections of wood. I can’t think of a better way to bring the outdoors in. I create a guide over on my eBay blog with tips to make something creative with wood slices for your home or as a gift (plus some tips on how to find and finish the wood).

A few years ago I made some natural branch coasters that I still get asked about weekly. Mostly people want to buy a set of mine, but they are so easy to make that I encourage them to follow the tutorial and get in a little craft therapy.

I only have one set of my coasters left as I gave the rest of them away. I had so much fun working with wood slices that I have since done a number of projects with them, including these Christmas Tree Ornaments made from a Christmas tree trunk (you can find this project in my book, Garden Made).Owl Christmas Tree Wood Slice Ornaments from the book Garden Made
