For winter weddings, one of the most thoughtful wedding favors you can buy are ornaments. An ornament is a nice gift for guests to take home from your wedding day, whether personalized with your date or with your favorite holiday greeting. Guests will always remember your special day as they hang up the ornament on their Christmas tree, year after year.
In addition, wood slices are on-trend right now for rustic weddings; you’ve probably been seeing them everywhere as I have! Read on for tips on where to buy wood slice ornaments for wedding favors, as Christmas gifts, or as bridesmaid proposals this season. Enjoy!
Where to Buy Wood Slice Ornaments
These beautiful wood slice ornaments are lovingly handcrafted, one-at-a-time, by designer Jessie Boone of Created With Heart Shop. One thing I noticed initially, besides how lovely they look, is the high-quality way they’re made.
If you do a quick search on where to buy wood slice ornaments, you may notice that many are made with stickers or vinyl transferred onto the wood slices. This is a transfer process, which means the look may not last (and can even rub-off of the slice before the big day). Instead, Jessie takes her time with these wood slices: each one is hand-painted with an oil-based paint marker in her own unique hand-lettering. Each slice is completely one-of-a-kind, as they come from a natural state; wood ornaments are made of pinewood, acrylic paint, and twine for hanging. Ornament measures 3-3.5 inches in size.
Should You Buy Slice Ornaments or DIY?
I’ve been looking for where to buy wood slice ornaments ever since finding them on Pinterest; I quickly discovered, however, that getting them made for you is a lot easier than DIYing them. This is especially true if you’re looking to make wood slice ornaments bulk sized or even handfuls of them would be time-consuming.
In addition, learning how to properly hand-letter, paint, drill holes, and add twine to each one, along with sourcing all the materials, can be time-consuming and costly.
If you’re already busily wedding planning, adding more tasks to your list may not be in the cards; therefore, making wood slice ornaments is probably less probable than buying them. Getting them made by a professional like Created With Heart Shop is a great place to get them made for your event.
Note: you can also buy wood slice ornaments for wedding showers, holiday parties, or to give as handmade holiday gifts this year.
Can You Get Wood Slice Ornaments Customized?
Of course! The designs shown here are an example; you can ask for custom ornaments made just for you. I can imagine your new last name, the wedding date, or simply your favorite holiday greeting. Custom orders welcome: just ask!
I know it’s a bit early for holiday cheer (but really, is it ever too early for extra cheer?) but if you’d like to buy wood slices for wedding ornaments, you can click here to shop. It is great to order early since these are handcrafted one-at-a-time. :)
