Monogrammed Wood Slice Ornaments

For Day 9 of the 12 Days of Handmade Ornaments series I decided to dig deep into my southern roots and make a monogrammed ornament to share with y'all! A gold and white monogrammed wood slice ornament to be precise. I actually made these last year for several friends and family members and they were a big hit. Everyone loves something with their own initials on it.

Here's how I did it:


Here's your one-sentence tutorial: grab a wood slice ornament (I sliced mine up from a log at my in-laws' house, but you can also buy them online), paint it gold, draw monogram letters on it, drill a hole in the top and hang it!

I freehanded the letters, but used this awesome image of a circle monogram font so I would know how to draw them.

Here's what the wood slices look like from one step to the next:

Once I got the hang of drawing the letters like the font above, these were a piece of cake to make. I hope this tutorial inspires you to get creative with your ornaments!
