Supplies needed for wood slice ornaments:
(The supplies listed below will make three (3) ornaments)
- 3 round wood slices such as birch, about 3” across, ⅜’ thick drilled with hole
- DecoArt Americana Chalky Finish paint in Serene, New Life, Rejuvenate
- Flat paint brush
- Fine tip black permanent marker or brush pen (such as the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen)
- Decorative ribbon of your choice, ⅛” wide
How to make Easter ornaments:
- Plan out the positioning of your lettering by tracing the outline of the wood slices onto a piece of paper.
- Draw in the inner border of where the paint will end.
- Using the template as a guide, or lettering style of your choice, practice writing the phrases (such as “faith”, “hope” and “belief”) onto the paper. Make any corrections until you are happy with the design. Set aside.
- Paint the surface of each wood slice with different colored paint, leaving a small border of unpainted wood on the outer edge. Let dry and then repeat on the other side if desired.
- With a pencil, copy the phrase from the practice sheet onto each wood slice. Make any corrections as needed until you are happy with the designs.
- Carefully, trace over the pencil marks with the fine tip black marker/ brush pen.
- Go back and thicken all the “down strokes” on the letters, leaving the “upstrokes” thinner.
- Let dry at least overnight before carefully erasing any pencil marks (don’t proceed if the marker smudges at all).
- Add ribbon for hanging.
And there you have it! The perfect Easter craft and decoration that’s just waiting for you to create it!
