I love all things snowmen related.  I just have a thing for them and think they’re the cutest.  Like the old Campbell’s soup commerical where the snowman comes in to have a bowl of soup and he thaws out and melts into a little boy.  Love it!  I was at Target the other day and spotted some wood slice tags in the Dollar Spot at Target and knew these would make for the cutest ornaments. The best part is… I created all 6 of these ornaments for just a dollar.  I already had the paint and ribbon.  But, you wouldn’t have to buy any ribbon, the package of tags already comes with twine.  These also come together in no time and make the perfect homemeade gift to attach to a present, wine bottle, card, etc.

Supplies Needed:

  • Wood Slice Tag From Dollar Spot
  • White, Black, and Orange Paint
  • Paint Brush
  • Ribbon

These are the great wood slice tags that I found in the Dollar Spot bins at Target.  It’s such a bargain to get six of these for $1.  I just had to snatch them up.  I think I will have to go back for more.

Step 1:  Use white paint to paint the front and backs of the wood slices.  I used chalk paint for this.  I found that it covers things a lot better and wanted to cover up the dark chalkboard circle on the one side.  The chalk paint worked perfectly for this.

Step 2:  Use a fine paint brush and paint the nose and eyes onto the slices.  Let them dry.  You can seal these with a matte spray paint or leave as is.

Step 3:  Use the twine that is provided for you or use your own ribbon to make a loop to hang the snowmen by.

Enjoy making these cute little snowmen.  They’re just adorable and so easy.  Now, I’m off to Target to pick up more of the tags.  I hope they still have them.

Wood Slice Turkeys For Kids

Wood Slice Turkeys for Kids-Artzy Creations 5

At our house, it’s typically a long day for the kids and they get a little restless waiting for the big Thanksgiving dinner.  Not this year… I’ve come up with a clever way to create a turkey  using just a few materials and some wood slices.  I love wood slices and how versatile they are for so many crafts.  Plus, they make the cutest darned turkeys.

This project is great because you can have the pieces pre cut and put in separate bags for the kids to complete on Thanksgiving day.  That really helps make this project extra simple, easy to distribute and manage on that busy day.

Supplies Needed:

  • Wood Slices
  • Red Felt
  • Orange Felt
  • Googly Eyes
  • Tacky Glue (It’s great for kids to use for this project.) or Hot Glue
  • Colored Ribbon

 

Step 1:  Cut several pieces of different colored ribbon to roughly 3″ in length.  Make a loop and place a dab of glue between the ends of the ribbon to glue them together.

Step 2:  Glue the loops of ribbon to the back of the turkey and space them out just a little bit in a fan pattern.

Step 3:  Next, you will create the legs of the turkey by taking two pieces of ribbon, roughly 1″ in lenght and glue these pieces to the back of the turkey.  If you’re using ribbon with a pattern (like mine) make sure the pattern is facing the front so you can see it.  You can angle the legs like I did or have them just go straight up and down.

Step 3:  Take a little piece of red felt and a cut a curved waddle shape.  Use a small piece of orange felt and cut a triangle for the beak.

Step 4:  Glue the waddle shape down first.  Followed by the beak.  Finally, glue the googly eyes on.
