Rustic Wood Ornaments!

Hey everyone! 
Christmas is right around the corner, and I wanted to show you how easy and fun it is to use pretty holiday papers on wood slices and how you can further embellish them with shiny foil words, quotes, and patterns!

wood slices
matte Mod Podge
pretty holiday cardstock papers
pen / pencil
assorted colors of Minc foil
Zig 2-way glue pen
assorted tree picks and sprays
hot glue / hot glue gun
laser wood cutout holiday silhouettes 

 First to make cute holiday backgrounds on your wood slices, trace circles around them onto the pretty papers, and then cut them out. Apply the matte Mod Podge with a brush to the wood slice and adhere cardstock circles to them.

In order to use the Zig 2-way glue pen and the Minc foil, write a word on the paper and allow to dry. (3-5 minutes) When the glue is fully dry it becomes tacky (as opposed to wet) so it can pull the foil from the sheet and become a pretty shiny design! 

If you want to get really fancy, you can add some laser cutout holiday images and use it as a dimensional accent to the top of your cardstock wood slice!

Once the glue is dry, apply foil (pretty side facing up) and press firmly with your finger until you see glued image showing through the foil. When you peel upwards, you'll find that your foil has transferred! Just in case the foil didn't full pull off the sheet, you can reapply the foil to any remaining tacky areas. Feel free to also reapply the glue pen and layer colors together! Have fun foiling!!  

Use your hot glue gun / hot glue to adhere silhouettes, or pieces of picks /  sprays to wood slices!
Ta Da!
So easy and so cute!!  

Have fun decorating!
