Good Morning and Happy Friday!!!
We’re Back!!! My blog friends and I have had so much fun participating in The Great Crate Challenge, as well as our Pick Your Pumpkin Challenge we decided to make it a monthly affair! So each month we will take the same item and each recreate something out of it. It is so fun to see each month what we all come up with, so I am really looking forward to doing it every month. Come get inspired this month with 13 Wood Slice Crafts!

This wood slice challenge couldn’t have come at a better time. Shortly after deciding on what the item would be for this challenge, I came across some tree branches that my neighbor had after trimming his tree. SCORE!!! I was seriously on my way to the craft store to buy some wood slices when I stumbled upon them 🙂
I decided to make a Santa face using wood slices and a few household items that I had on hand. Making this project very cheap, with only having to buy one large wood slice.
Rustic Wood Slice Santa
It all started with these lovely tree branches!
My wonderful husband cut these for me into little wood slices, leaving one to make my Rustic Log Holiday Card Display. I only had to purchase one larger wood slice at Michaels. Everything else for this project I had at home 🙂
I used the little wood slices for Santa’s beard and hat. I placed two little wood slices for the eyes, so I would have an idea where to start the beard and the hat. So I just started assembling them to get an idea of where to place them, and then just started gluing them on with a hot glue gun. Once I glued on the first couple I just staggered them on and rearranged them in a way that looked good.
Once the beard and hat were all glued together than it was time to assemble Santa’s face. Using items that we had on hand like screws, washers, etc..
I glued all these on as well with a hot glue gun and my Santa was complete.
I am having a little bit of a love hate relationship with this Santa, but he is really starting to grow on me. Just sit back and look at him for a minute and he will grow on you too! It reminds the hubs of one of the characters off the Robots movie haha! I think he has his own unique character and is a silly little Santa!
Now lets see what all my talented friends did with their wood slices!
