Sliced Wood Ornaments

If you like making homemade Christmas ornaments, try this easy and frugal craft using sliced pieces of wood and paint.  This project offers a unique way to up-cycle any wood you may have on hand and also makes a thoughtful gift idea. Note that I used mesquite wood that I had at home and cut the pieces with a table saw. If you do not have access to a saw, you can purchase sliced birch pieces online or at your local craft store.

Supplies Needed:

3/4 inch thick sliced wood about 3-4 inches in diameter
small screw in eye hooks (from hardware store)
holiday colored ribbon or twine
craft acrylic paint of various colors
small craft paintbrush
small holiday themed or monogram stencils if desired (I used the Martha Stewart brand)

Directions: Paint and embellish wood slices as desired and let dry. Screw in eye hooks to the top of each ornament and embellish with a ribbon or twine. You could also drill a hole towards the top of each circle and tie the twine to hang instead of using eye hooks.
Santa Painted Sliced Wood Ornament
To make the Santa ornaments pictured above, first paint the top 1/3 of the wood slice in red and the bottom 1/3 in white. It’s best to use two coats of paint and let dry in between coats. Add a small red craft pom using glue for Santa’s nose or a red dot of paint.
Chalkboard Painted Sliced Wood Ornaments Hip2Save
To make these chalkboard inspired ornaments above, first paint two coats of black paint or chalkboard paint on one side of the wood and let dry. Then use white paint and stencil a holiday related image or monogram letter.
Snowman Painted Sliced Wood Christmas OrnamentsTo create this snowman pictured above, first paint entire side of ornament white and let dry. Then use a pencil eraser tip to stamp on circles with black paint for eyes and mouth. Use orange paint for the nose and pink or flesh colored paint for cheeks.

  • HIP List
  • Print

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing in classic view.

If you prefer to view in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
