Available in a wide variety of sizes, wood slices have become a go-to decor item for weddings and DIY gifts. Handy and attractive for holiday decorations, mobiles, magnets, coasters, photo props, and ornaments, this natural and organic-looking material provides a fun and adaptable surface for use in a range of craft projects. Whether you choose a raw bark edge or a sanded one, an unfinished wood slice will provide an easy surface for painting, staining, woodburning, collage, and whatever else you can dream up. However, given the natural surface, it may be important to prime it before applying paint or to seal it after you’ve completed your work to protect it from damage and aging. To find the right unfinished wood slices for you, check out our roundup below.
