I have this list of projects I want to do, and they are numbered in order of priority.  Do you have one of those lists?  At the very bottom of my list is “deep clean the house”.  Funny thing is – it never moves up.  Hmm.

Any way.

When I thought of the idea of these botanical wood slices, it didn’t even make it on the list.  It just simply took priority because I couldn’t wait to see if it would work!


So once I discovered how to transfer printer ink onto a wood surface, I had my hubs slice up a log and I transferred some beautiful botanical prints onto the wood slices.  The result was stunning!  (If I do say so myself)

If you want to learn how to transfer the ink, and where to find these lovely botanical prints – head over to THIS post where you will find the full tutorial and all the details.

But before you head over there, let me convince you of 6 beautiful reasons you need to toss your list and start making a whole collection of botanical wood slices.

6 Creative Uses for Botanical Wood Slices

I had a blast coming up with these 6 creative uses for botanical wood slices – and even more fun making the pictures!

So . . . in no particular order:

1.  Botanical Gift Toppers

Botanical Gift Toppers

Actually, they would make a great gift in and of themselves, but lets talk about how gorgeous they look on a white package tied with hemp.

The receiver won’t even care what is inside!

P.S.  I just drilled a quick hole so I had something to tie it to.

2.  Botanical Coasters

What a lovely woodsy touch this would give any meal or picnic.

Just make sure they are cut flat (wink).

3.  Botanical Banners

Botanical Banners

You could hang these babies just about anywhere and they would steal the show.  But I must say, they look quite fantastic in a row, as a banner, on a thrifted blue door, above a bed.

It was just what our child size guest room needed.

Speaking of bedrooms . . .

4.  Botanical Wall Art

My daughter and I had a blast arranging this whimsical and woodsy wall display out of her favorite botanical wood slices.

You can hang with any picture hanger nailed to the back.  I just love how these look on her planked white walls (full bedroom shown HERE).

5.  Botanical Fridge Magnets

Botanical Fridge Magnets

It was easy peasy to hot glue a magnet to the back, and slap these on the fridge.

School papers and grocery lists never looked so good.

6.  Botanical Plant Labels

Botanical Plant Labels

I may or may not have saved my favorite for last.

I have what you might call “a black thumb” – and I kill everything green.  But, I’m fairly certain with these cute labels, my chances of keeping some plants alive have increased.

  1. Thank you for such a lovely DIY. I was looking for something easy and beautiful to make with my granddaughter who is spending the week with me. This project is perfect!

  2. I think they would look good arranged on a plain wood tray with sides. Just fill in around them and modpodge the tops. Same for an end table.
