Tree Slice Floral Christmas Decoration

Tree slices make decorative bases for natural Christmas decorations. Combined with a votive candle and evergreens, they can then be decorated according to your own style.



Christmas Centerpiece

For this project you will need:

- a tree slice about 2-3 cm thick (around 1 to 1 1/4inches)
- a glass votive candle holder
- a candle to fit in the votive glass
- hot glue gun or a sturdy stapler (the kind that opens up to staple also into verticle objects) natural greenery, pine cones,
  berries, holly leaves, etc... to embellish the centerpiece


1. Hot glue the votive glass to the center of the wood slice.
2. Take about 10 cm (6 inch) pieces of greenery and staple them in different directions on one side of the tree slice and then on the other, covering the ends at the same time.. As an alternative, you can hot glue these to the wood slice as well.
3. Arrange your embellishments on the centerpiece. Once you are satisfied with the positions of them, hot glue them into place.

We received this tip from one of our crafty readers for drying orange or apple slices.
 “If you have a gas stove with a pilot light, you can leave your items in the oven to dry. This method is a little faster than the radiator method but not as fast as the microwave.”

Experiment with different materials such as cinnamon sticks, orange and apple slices, pine cones, walnuts, peanuts, chestnuts, etc... when decorating your tree slice. You can also make a ribbon bow to decorate it as well.
