It’s Day 2 of the 12 Days of handmade Christmas ornaments, and today I’m sharing my DIY monogrammed wood slice ornament. In case you haven’t heard, monograms + rustic + plaid = this year’s Christmas trifecta!
(Or maybe I just made that up.)
(Feel free to nod your head and smile.)
My inspiration for this project was this wood slice coaster I found at Michaels.
It seemed like it was just itching for a monogram, so I added one using a modified version of my easy chalkboard lettering tutorial. I printed out a letter “R” onto plain printer paper, centered it over the wood slice, and taped it at the top and bottom so it would stay in place. Then I traced over the black lines of the letter with a pencil, pressing with medium firmness so the pencil would slightly indent the wood slice where I traced.
The result? Little lines created in your wood slice, guiding you exactly where to draw!
I used a fine-tipped red Sharpie marker to trace the indented lines and color in the solid outline.
To finish, I inserted a screw eye into the top and added a ribbon for hanging.
