Wood Slice Heart

Wood Slice Heart - Valentine Mantel

With Valentine’s Day tomorrow I wanted to share this simple Wood Slice Heart I made over the weekend.  It was really easy to create and completely free to make using supplies we already had on hand.  I added it to our living room fireplace mantel and I love the texture and beauty it adds to our Valentine Décor.

We have had a lot of windy weather lately so I had no trouble finding sticks in our yard to create this diy project with.  Be sure to find sticks of different widths to add more interest to your project.

Using our miter saw (DEWALT DW715 15-Amp 12-Inch Single-Bevel Compound Miter Saw) we cut the sticks to about 1 inch each until I had a large pile.

I cut a heart shape out of construction paper and used it as a template to create the pattern I wanted with the wood slices.

Jason cut out a heart shaped piece of MDF for me to glue the wood slices to.

Using my glue gun I added the wood slices one at a time starting with the larger slices first.  I tried to cover as much of the MDF as possible so the only thing you could see was the wood slices.

I filled in any empty gaps between the wood slices with some tiny sticks I cut with my handy gardening pruners, (Corona AP 3110 Anvil Pruner With Vinyl Coated Steel Handles, 3/4″ Cut).

Overall the entire project took less than 2 hours to complete.
