I couldn’t help but share a cute little rustic ornament that requires almost zero work!

I am excited join an ornament exchange this year. My exchange partner is the lovely Alicia from Chicken Scratch NY. She has a taste for all things rustic & red.

Knowing this, I couldn’t help but channel her love for something natural with my need for something easy. I’m crossing my fingers that she likes it!

A’la a fun DIY rustic wood slice ornaments.

These easy wood slice ornaments are made with pine cones you can collect in your own backyard

 

DIY Rustic Wood Slice Ornament

I found this tutorial for the rustic wood slice ornament. Diane’s ornaments were made using items she found on her land. How cool. For this ornament exchange project, I kept Diane’s inspiration in mind and my need for making an ornament super simple— so what did I do?

I totally ran to Jo-Ann Fabrics. #NoShame

 You can buy the supplies for just a few dollars and you won’t need to drill holes in the ornaments. #SavingTime

 

These wood slice ornaments are super easy to make and require only a few tools, making them a perfect beginner DIY

 

Supplies Needed:

 

Collect pine cones in your own yard or pick up a few from your local craft store for just a few dollars

Use an industrial crafting scissors to cut the pine cones into slices

 

Make Pine Cone Slices

First, you’ll want to slice the pine cone. Since I used the scented pine cones you can find just about any where, my slices are much larger than the inspiration. Diane used smaller, narrower, pine cones that made for a pretty flower effect.

Decide where you want to cut your pine cone for the size. Then, go one ‘layer’ below it and start cutting. This will give you more to work with, and in the event, a piece breaks off, you still have an extra layer available.

I hope that makes sense– you can always trim away at the pine cone, but it’s harder to add it back on later.

Pinecone slices look like wooden flowers when cut into pieces

I found that using these thick snips helped me cut through the Jo-Ann scented pine cones. Depending on the thickness of your pine cone, you may have to go around the wood slice two time to cut all the way through. Save any bits & pieces for filling in your ornament later.

I will tell you– I was nervous for my first cut. But once I had the first one done, the remaining ones were so much easier (and I felt more comfortable!)

Pro tip: Slice your pine cone over the kitchen sink. Trust me on this 🙂

Assemble Your Ornament

Next, take the largest flat ‘face’ of the pine cone and hot glue it to the center of the wood slice. Press the pine cone into place for about a minute or until it cools into place.

Use a hot glue gun to attach the pinecone slice to the wood slice

Use extra bits of pinecone to fill in any spaces

If it’s not completely even, that is okay! You can fill in any spot or uneven-ness with extra pieces of the pine cone.

Allow the hot glue to cool.

Pro tip: Need more flat area to glue to the wood slice? You can trim any pieces on the bottom of pin cone slice to create as flat of a glued surface as possible.

  1. The rustic charm of these ornaments is amazing! I had no idea what a pine cone looked like cut and it makes a pretty flower. I love it and might have to make some.

  2. Those are cute. I’d love to try making them with the cinnamon scented pinecones they sell in the stores… I just adore the smell of cinnamon at Christmastime. 🙂 Pinned.

  3. I really love this ornament! It’s simple, but so pretty and I have all the supplies to make these too. Thanks for sharing your tutorial on the ornament exchange.
