These festive Reindeer Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments are a great neighbor gift that the entire family can help make.

 

I love Christmas ornaments!  Each year, I like to gift my good friends an ornament that I deliver with my Christmas card and my favorite Christmas Crunch.  This year, I made  Reindeer Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments.  They were SO SIMPLE and I love how they turned out!  My 7 year old daughter and my 14 year old son helped me quite a bit to help make these, so they are a great family project.  You can easily replicate and make a bunch like I did to pass out to your friends and family.

How to make Wood Slice Christmas Ornaments

First, I purchased the wood log slices off of Amazon. I’m sharing an affiliate link, (which doesn’t add onto your price, but helps me).  You can also find them at local craft stores.  I got a bag of 20 or 30. They had some pre drilled for a little more, but I had my handy 14 year old son (whom is very interested in power tools these days) drill some holes for me.  We used the wholes to tie the ornament string through. I grabbed the wood slices that were 2-3 inches. There are a variety of sizes online, but I wanted it big enough to fit my reindeer.

Here are my wood slice Christmas ornament making elves…all so helpful!

I’m quite happy that I have a willing child to drill holes for me! It’s not a tedious task I enjoy doing.  I also love my Ryobi cordless power drill and so does he!

I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to paint a nice looking circle, I don’t feel I have the steadiest hand…but I was pleased with how they turned out!

I had a hard time finding the reindeer but finally found them at a craft store.  They came in a set of 25 and were in the paper craft section.

    OMG. I absolutely Love your woodsie ornaments. Nice seeing your children getting involved in the making of these ornaments. They done a great job.

    Now, if I can locate your mailing address I will be able to send you a Christmas card. I had it written on a piece of paper and now I have misplaced it and can’t seem to find where you had posted it on your blog.
    If I clean off my craft desk I might find it. Let’s hope.
