Wood Crafts for Christmas - Natural Christmas Tree Ornaments Crafted From Wooden Branch Slices

If you like a natural look, then this project is a perfect choice. Branch slices are decorated with embellishments using brown felt, cardboard, wood and jute which give Christmas ornaments a charming and rustical look.




Natural Ornaments Crafted From Wooden Branch Slices

For this project you will need:

- branch slices about 5-7 cm in size
- cardboard boxes, brown felt, thin wood or anythinglse that looks natural and can be cut or die-cut
- jute twine
- wooden balls in various sizes between 4 and 10 millimeters for embellishing and also to add to the twine
- brown wooden buttons or other small brown embellishments that can be used
- drill with small bit to drill a hole in the branch slice
- craft glue and hot glue
- die-cutting machine with Christmas dies or use our
patterns and find simple items you can print and cut out
- scissors


1. First drill a hole in each of the branch slices. Cut a 30 cm piece of twine and double it. Pull the two ends first through the hole and then through the loop and pull so that a hanger is created. Slip a 10 mm wooden bead over the two ends and then knot them together at the top.
2. Create a double bow with twine and hot glue the bow at the hole.
3. The rest is up to you. Embellish your branch slices according to what you have or find at a craft shop.
