Hey y’all…I think you know our love affair with wood and moss for this Christmas season decor. Did you see Jenn’s amazing Wood Slice Christmas Trees yesterday? They are super cute.
She and I have been on the same wavelength with our creativity lately. While she was creating her trees, I was creating some Christmas ornaments. We are so excited to be participating in a Merry Christmas Ornament Hop with 16 other bloggers! Part of us are participating today and the rest of our group will be posting tomorrow. You can follow along today and tomorrow.
For our ornament I knew exactly what I wanted to craft. I dreamt up this idea several weeks ago and it all started with this collection of twigs and branches…
Yes, I’m a big weirdo that collects things like this. But before you laugh you need to know something. I had this displayed in our antique booth as decoration – not for sale – and someone offered to buy it for $45! So I know I’m not alone in my adoration and appreciation for branches! I’ve collected these over time from my backyard and walks in the woods at the lake.
I knew that I wanted to make stacked wood slice christmas tree ornaments. I was sure they would be easy to make and cute on my tree! And this was well before that I knew Jennifer was going to be making a stacked wood slice project too! Great minds do think alike!
I selected just a couple of branches and used my garden limb loppers to make my wood slices.
I had this little pile of mini wood slices in short order…
I gathered my materials:
- wood slices
- reindeer moss
- hot glue
- star anise as tree toppers
- red ribbon
- metal eyelet screws for the ribbon
In just a few minutes I had put together five sweet trees…
Here they are, ready for center stage on the tree…
How cute are these? I just love how rustic they look. The anise is so aromatic and a perfect tree topper.
I think what I appreciate most is how perfectly imperfect they are. No two trees are alike – just like in real life.
They turned out exactly as I saw them in my head…it’s not often I get to say that LOL. Jenn and I can’t wait to share more of our Christmas decor and creation in the weeks to come!
Don’t forget to visit all of our blogging friends today and tomorrow, and tell them “hey” from us!

And I have random twigs and sticks from the yard in my attic 🙂
Thanks so much Karen! Glad to know we aren’t the only “collectors” 🙂
Very, very cute!
Aww…thank you so much Suzy! We appreciate it!
Nice! I’ve got two trees in my backyard that need to be cut down. Maybe I’ll copy you. That’s flattering, right? Happy Holidays Vicki!
Karen – you are a riot! Flatter away LOL!
Super cute ladies! Love how your taking nature to a whole new level this year! Hugs, CoCo
Thanks so much CoCo – we are definitely loving the wood and moss this year!
I love these! I have wood slices on my tree too. Nothing better than natural decor!
Lindsay – great minds think alike LOL. We are loving the moss and wood theme this year!
Wow! What a great idea.
You’re the best! Thank you!
Those are just darling!! Now I know what to do with all the branches that have been blowing off the trees yesterday and today! Love it and pinning it! Thanks so much for organizing this great ornament event!
Hey Linda – Yes – our yard is a bounty for branches and sticks to! And it’s free decor LOL. We are so happy with our ornament hop group…so much fun!
Such a fun ornament! I really like the rustic look of the logs mixed with the moss. I bet they smell so good! It’s been so fun seeing how different everyone’s ornaments are. Thanks so much for arranging the hop!
Thanks Tara – our wood and moss theme has been a lot of fun! We have a lot of other things in the works too! We have had so much organizing this hop. Can’t wait to see your creation tomorrow!
These are cute! We kindergartener keeps dragging random sticks in the house. I might start holding onto them and make these with him. He loves getting crafty.
Hi Kim – Thank you so very much. Yes, let your little helper bring all of those sticks into the house 🙂 Time to get crafty!
OMG, so cute! So cool that you two are on the same wavelength! I love both sizes!
Hey Kimm – We guess the saying…”Like mother, like daughter” is true! Thanks so much!
This is truly one of the cutest little ornaments I’ve ever seen!
Hey Iris…thank you so much! We should have done an ornament swap as we love your white bottlebrush tree ornaments! Thanks so much for participating!
TOO, TOO, TOO cute! You’re blowing me away with your creativity. I may go coastal with this and add a small starfish at the top.
Oh my gosh!!! That would be adorable!!!
Love these, so cute. I really need to start picking up all those branches that fall in the back yard instead of throwing them away!
How cute! I love the star anise on the top – what a great idea. I have some left over from a simmering potpourri recipe. Now I know what to make with it!
I have had nature crafting on the brain lately and these are just so creative and pretty! Love the anise for a star and the moss tucked in! Your photos are magazine worthy! So glad to be a part of this blog hop ;o)
Still love these! 😉 Thanks for linking up your amazing projects to Inspired By You ladies!! I really appreciate your support! Muah!
These are so cute – what a great idea! Thanks for getting us all together; I love all the ornament ideas!
I have a new respect for all the twigs and branches in my yard. Can’t wait to make some of these charming ornaments. Thanks for the idea and for sharing at Inspire Me Monday.
These are very original. I’ve never seen them stacked and turned into ornaments before. Way to go ladies!! Rustic and practically free. Love it! My kind of project.
