Step by step tutorial to craft the wooden slice sign:
Step 1: Paint your wooden slice
For this step, you will need your paintbrush and a lighter shade of green acrylic paint. Begin by laying your wooden slice flat on your workspace, with the side you will like to paint face up.
Take your paintbrush and begin painting the wooden slice.
Be careful not to paint over the borders of the wood slice. The border will frame the area painted with the green paint nicely.
Once you are done painting, carefully set the wooden slice down to dry.
Step 2: Write your preferred message on the painted portion
Think of something meaningful to you. It could be a word or a phrase. Once you decide what it is, grab your alphabet stencil and place it on the painted portion of your wooden slice.
Take your white acrylic paint and begin painting over the letters that form your chosen message.
Once you are done with the first, move on to the next letter.
Repeat the process until you have spelled out the word you want. Remove to do this slowly and carefully, so the letters are spelled out neatly.
Step 3: Decorating the wooden slice
To decorate your wooden slice, you need your paintbrush, white paint, gold paint, pink paint, and the darker shade of your green color. Using your paintbrush, draw a small heart at the end of your message with the white paint.
Next, take the gold paint and draw a flower at the opposite side of the heart
Do the same thing for the side where you have painted the heart.
Paint some more flowers on the wood slice using your pink paint.
You can paint on as many flowers as you like in whatever colors you choose.
Using the darker shade of green, paint some leaves on the petals you have already drawn.
If you are feeling creative, you can paint many other fun things. Some different designs you can try out include butterflies, clouds, shapes, unicorns, puppies, and so many other unique patterns.
Step 4: Making a bow
Grab a piece of the lace ribbon and cut it to your desired length for a small bow.
Fold the ribbon to form a small bow.
Place the bow at the center of the base of the slice.
Apply a dot of glue to the slice where you would like the bow to be placed, just beneath the message on your slice.
Secure the bow firmly to the slice using your glue gun.
Trim off any excess ribbon, and your bow is now perfect.
Step 5: Making a strap
Take your silk ribbon and measure your preferred length for the strap. Remember, the longer the strap, the closer your wooden slice is to the ground.
Cut your desired length with your scissors.
Apply some glue to both spots where you will be placing the silk ribbon at the back of your wooden slice.
Secure the silk ribbon by pressing it firmly behind the wooden slice.
Make sure you secure both sides so the slice doesn’t lose and fall.
Lay out your wood slice and admire it.
