Rustic Wood Slice Wreath

Rustic Wood Slice Wreath, Painted Pinecone Flowers, Woodburned Welcome

As the weather begins to cool down, I’m hosting more gatherings in my home. My warm welcome to my guests begins at my front door with this rustic wood slice wreath. I embellished the bark-edged wood slices with some painted flowers that I created from pine cones. I wood burned the word “Welcome” onto my wreath, but a monogram, last name, or different greeting would also look fantastic. This wreath, which can be assembled with basic supplies in just an hour or two, is a real showpiece for the season.

Rustic Wood Slice Wreath Assembly

Step One: Use a hot glue gun to attach the wood slices to the foam wreath base. Note: I used 32 wood slices in 3 layers to create my wreath.

Step Two: Use stencils to outline the word “Welcome” onto the bottom of the wreath. Use the Creative Versa-Tool to wood burn the word. Note: I used the Calligraphy Point to outline the letters and the Flow Point to smooth the curves and shade in the letters.

Step Three: Use pruning shears to cut pine cones into pieces. Two layers of scales create a nice flower shape. Apply acrylic paint to the pine cone scales and let dry. Use a hot glue gun to attach the “flowers” to the wreath. Note: Pine cones collected from nature will need to be cleaned and dried. I purchased a bag of cinnamon-scented pine cones from the craft store that were clean, dry, and ready to use for this project.
