Thanks to my Dad for slicing up some small wood pieces for me. But you can buy them at any craft store. Here is how the deer ornament looked when I bought him:

It was very pretty and glittery, which I like, but I was making this for a friend who loves rustic farmhouse. So I decided to paint it to look like galvanized metal. First I removed the adornments and gave the entire piece two coats of black paint.

Then I added one coat of silver metallic paint. I wanted some of the black to show underneath. Then I hot glued him to the wood Slice and added ribbon. My friend loves buffalo check so that is what I used and it definitely goes with the farmhouse theme.
