Welcome to Our Crafty Mom. Today is our monthly Create With Me challenge hosted by Samantha from Little Bits of Home.
At the start of each month, we ask YOU to vote on what material we should use in our next Create With Me Challenge.
Then we share our projects using the material you voted for! It is so much fun to see how different everyone’s projects are!

For this month’s project you voted for natural wood, which I was so excited for! I love using wood slices in my home décor.
As I was decorating my mantel for Winter, I thought a wood slice banner would be perfect. There is a little surprise on the other side of this banner which I will show you at the end.

You can use stencils for lettering, or use the transfer method that we used to do in elementary school, where you use a pencil to color the back of the paper and then write with a pen over the image.
I used chalk and stencils and now that I look at these photos, I do need to erase the chalk a little better, lol! See what happens when you don’t edit the photos before posting?
I wood burned over it. The wood burning tool is one of my favorite new craft items. I made some really cool wood-burned ornaments for Christmas shown at the end of the post.
I nailed a small hole in each wood slice and using fishing line to hang it to a long piece of twine. I also attached the snowflakes with fishing line.

I am all for creating things that serve dual purposes. So on the flip side I used chalkboard paint and wrote SPRING.
I can also erase this when the time comes and write SUMMER, etc. Here is the ornament I made using a stamp:
