Easy Decor Using Log Slices, Winter Indoors After the Holidays


Easy Decor Using Log Slices-
I first saw wood slices years ago, used primarily for wood burning. Two years ago I saw really beautiful, natural centerpieces, mostly from Germany, for Advent on Pinterest. Here's a few examples, no links sadly-

Lots of layering, love it

Simple and sweet

What fun!

Lots of colors and texture

Recently I saw this-


It got me thinking I could use wood slices for all kinds of decor! Here's some things I put together, with a wood slice from Michael's for $10.00-

Topiary and Swedish ivy

Little oil lamp

Red pips and birds

 I added this to my little winter bench, using a thicker slice for $5.00, adding more texture-


If you need something different go buy a slice and play with it!!! I can see all kinds of possibilities using what I already have!




Winter Indoors After the Holidays-
I'm hoping for real snow tonite!!! Storm on the way, sick of the brown frozen city. Snow please. I always start in early December putting out fun winter decor. My daughter gave me a nice compliment recently. She said "you always do a great job bringing nature inside". I loved it! I start with winter, my Yule shelf and the Advent ring. Closer to mid December I add Santa's and the Christmas tree. Around New Years we take down the tree and the rest of Christmas stuff. I like to leave up winter items until closer to the end of January. Here's our transitional goodies we have out now-

Snowmen with sparkly cotton balls and min swag

Snowman and birch wreath

Winter pick with chickens

Kitchen window

Winter birds in entryway

More snowmen

Light on the two topiaries with sparkly birds

Pine cone pots in living room
