Wood Slice Used as a Place Card and Chair Swag

Wood Slice Used as a Place Card and Chair Swag

Make It: Pick up firewood from a local vendor, then cut the logs into round or ovular placards. Once cut to size, use acrylic or latex paint and a detail brush to add names or holiday messages. For a more 3-D look, consider using wood or metal letters attached with wood glue. In keeping with the rustic motif, choose rope, twine or burlap ribbon to attach the bark to the chair, keeping it held in place with fabric weights stitched along the front edges.
