Tips for Making a Wood Slice Wreath
I found that using the backside of the wire wreath is the best because it’s easier to glue on the wood slices.
Also, it would be best to act fast when gluing on the wire because the hot glue dries extremely fast once it hits the metal. So I glue on one wood slice at a time.
Instead of cutting the sunflower stems, pop off the tops, then add hot glue to the backside to attach to the wire wreath. The full tutorial is below.
How to Make a Wood Slice Wreath
Let’s get crafting! Below is our written tutorial.
- 18 inch wire wreath form
- Sunflower Bunch
- Fern Bunch
- Wood Slices
- Hot Glue Gun/ Glue sticks
- Flip over the wire wreath so that you are using the backside. This will mean that the center wire and the outer wire will be flat.
- Start by adding a line of hot glue on the inner and second wires. You have to work quickly as the glue dries extremely fast once it hits the metal. Place a single layer of wood slices on top of the hot glue and press down to make sure it is secure. Leave a few inches in between each wood slice. Complete this 3/4ths all the way around the circle.
- Next add hot glue to each remaining wood slice and place the remaining slices on top in between each secured wood slice to create the staggered look.
- Then you will add the fern and the sunflowers in the space where you did not add wood slices. I left the stem on the fern and bent it in half, so some of the fern would go to each side. Add some hot glue to the wood slices and then press down firmly with the fern leaves so that it adheres to the wood slice.
- I popped off the tops of the flowers so I didn’t have to cut the stems. Add some hot glue to the backside of the sunflowers and then place them so they touch the wire wreath form.
- Then once the hot glue is dried, hang your sunflower wreath up on display!
