Wood Slice decor has come a long way since the 1970’s, when it was all too common to find renderings of the Last Supper or covered wagons migrating to the West, depicted on slabs of wood. While I always love a vintage design, let’s just say- that just ain’t my style.  The crafter in me loves to take otherwise ordinary items and turn them into something beautiful and that’s why I’m totally on board with all the wood slice crafts floating around Pinterest these days. Here are just 7 that I fully intend to try out.
