Raw Wood Slices

rustic wood, monogram, wood slices,

I am OBSESSED with these!  During the summer I procured a old dead log.  My dad is fearless with a chainsaw so I hit him up and explained to him that I was wanting several wood slices out of this log.  We teamed up and I held the log…(not recommended) and he sliced the stump into thin cuts with the chain saw.  He did such a good job there was little sanding required to get a nice surface to work with.  I used some of the slices for some center pieces for my sister in laws wedding and the rest of them I have had lying around in the garage.  I finished this one today with a little paint and flowers made from paper and fabric tidbits that I had lying around.  Loved the finished result.

  1. Black and white paint.  I used paper washi tape to stripe off the colors.  I started with solid black then added white stripes.
  2. I made several coordinating flowers out of fabric and paper.  Basically I just use a glue gun and start twisting and folding the paper or fabric in spirals and gluing as I go in random spots.  It makes fabulous rustic looking flowers.
  3. I added some plastic molded flowers to give it some texture and dimension.
  4. Prior to adhering the flowers I freehanded an “L” for my last name and now its sitting on my bathroom vanity.
