I’ve had this project on my DIY Pinterest board for quite a while, and it’s from one of my favorite blogs. This was an easy Pinterest Inspired post for me to write, since I’ve already done it!
Our wood slice is one of several decor pieces in our apartment that we reused from our wedding. Wood slices are so popular now, I’ve even seen them at Target to use as chargers for place settings, but I would buy them at a craft store to avoid overpaying. For this project I used a set of rubber alphabet stamps and a black ink pad.
I recommend not pressing down too hard on the ink pad or you’ll get part of stamp’s corner on the wood as well (though I kind of like this for an imperfect look- you’ll see some in the picture of my wood slice). Another tip is to vary the lettering a bit so it’s not all in a straight line to make it avoid looking too mechanical and to add a bit of whimsy.
You can also do this project with some chalk paint and a chalk marker! This was what we had on display for the guest favors at our wedding (The back is scratched since it’s been up against the wall).
The wood slice (stamped, chalked, or plain) makes a great wall hanging as well as entertaining piece, front door wreath alternative, centerpiece base for your dining room table…among many other possibilities!
