Did you know that autumn, winter, spring and summer all have 1 thing in common, aside from being seasons? Can you guess what it is?
They all have 6 letters in them!
So, who cares, right?
You can get double duty out of the project I’m sharing today, because I made some wood slice letters to display as part of my autumn mantel decor, and since wood slices have 2 sides, you can put the letters for one season on one side and another season on the other – just flip them around, change up the rest of the decor on the mantel and you can go from a rustic autumn display to a woodland Christmas display, just like that! 🙂 Make a 2nd set, and you can have spring and summer and use the same display year-round!
I put together a little video to show how I made them.
Be gentle with me – it’s my first time making a video, and I admit, it’s pretty pitiful, but I tried. 🙂
Make sure you view it until the end, where I shared another way to use the wood slice letters!
I found my wood slices at an antique store, of all places, but if you don’t have your own, craft stores often carry them.
I purchased 1″ chipboard letters, painted them, and hot glued them onto my wood slices.
I gave a fresh coat of white paint to an old window I had.
Then I attached some rustic wood to the back of the window and hung up my wood slices.
A few little brass owls got added to the display.
The set of them are available in my online shop HERE.
I also added one of my favorite antique clocks
I’m pretty happy with how my little 25 cent wood slices turned out!
So tell me, how do you decorate for autumn?
