How do you make Sliced Wood Ornaments?

I started by drilling a hole at the top of the wood slices.  A 9/64 drill bit was perfect for this. It was big enough to make slipping some jute twine through the hole relatively easy. You could also use a pretty Christmas ribbon if you prefer.

Next step is attaching your printout on top of the wood slices. I used painter’s tape to hold the paper in place while hammering.

Now it’s hammer time! You want to study your printout to determine where you will be placing the nails. Images with straight lines are the easiest.

If you’ve got curves you want to space them close enough to capture the curves.

Then it’s time to attach the twine. I picked an outer edge nail to tie off and then worked my way around with a piece of twine. If the space is tight a needle nose pliers can be helpful. Once you’ve finished around your shape you tie off the twine on one of the nails.
