Every year my kids and I put all of their homemade ornaments, school ornaments, and fun ornaments on our tree, and it's one of my favorite things to do as we decorate the tree!

DIY Christmas Wood Slice Ornament

I used to buy personalized ornaments to mark special moments that happened during the year – like the birth of a baby, learning to ride a bike, etc.

But in my heart of hearts, I REALLY love homemade Christmas ornaments! Plus, we've passed the point for most of those cute milestones. I have LOTS of homemade ornaments from previous kids' projects, and I treasure them. AND I want to get in on the fun too!

I was surfing around on the web one day and saw some really cute DIY wood slice ornaments that caught my attention. I went on about my business but couldn't get them out of my head. The Santas really caught my eye 😉

So I decided to make some wood slice ornaments myself – but I wanted to take my own spin on it. That's when these DIY Rudolph ornaments came about.

Aren't they adorable?

How to Make This Rudolph Wood Slice Christmas Ornament

Follow these step-by-step instructions to make your own adorable DIY Rudolph ornaments.

Step 1 – Make the Hanger

Fold the ribbon in half, and place the ends on the back of the large wood slice. Attach it to the back of your wood slice with dabs of hot glue.

If you waOpen a stapler, and place it flush against the ribbon, and staple to the top of the wood slice. I stapled twice to ensure it was securely attached.

Step 2 – Make the Antlers

Cut a piece of the gold Pipe Cleaner, approximately 2” long.

Cut an additional piece of pipe cleaner approximately 1 ½” long. Place the shorter piece behind the longer piece of pipe cleaner in the shape of a cross. Twist the shorter pipe cleaner once around the longer piece to attach, and then angle upwards to form an antler.

Place the antler to the left of the ribbon, and attach it to the wood slice with a dab of hot glue. Repeat this process to make the right antler, and attach it with a dab of hot glue to the wood slice.

Step 3 – Make the Ears

Cut a 1” strip of the foam sheet. Fold the end of the strip up approximately 1 ½”.

Cut out a marquis shape to make the ears. You may need to cut again to separate the ears.

Place the foam ears to the left and right of the Gold Pipe Cleaner antlers, and attach to the wood slice using a stapler.

DIY Wood Slice Ornament FAQs

If you have questions about how to make these wood slice Christmas ornaments, this is the place to get them answered for you.

(If you don't see your particular question here, leave it in the comments and I'll get you an answer – and add it here!)

Can Kids Make This Craft?

Short answer: yes!

Longer answer: use your best judgement as a parent. You know your child better than anyone else. The most dangerous part of this craft is using the hot glue gun or stapler.

If you feel comfortable letting your child use those items – or just stepping in enough to do that for her, then yes, your child can absolutely make it!

Can You Give a Wood Slice Ornament as a Gift?

Yes! Homemade gifts are my FAVORITE to give – and get. They are cheaper, cuter, sometimes healthier/more natural, more meaningful, and more personal than purchased gifts.

But, I fully recognize that I'm also not a professional crafter, and there is DEFINITELY a limit to my crafting abilities! That's why crafts like this one are PERFECT for my abilities – and desires.

And who wouldn't want an adorable Rudolph ornament to hang on their tree?

Repeat this process to make the right antler, and again attach it with a stapler (or dab of glue) to the right of the ribbon.

    Add the eyes: Remove the backing from the adhesive eyes, and place on the large wood slice above the pompom nose.

    Add the finishing touches: Using a permanent black marker, draw a mouth under the red nose. Your ornament is complete and ready to be hung on the tree (or wrapped up as a gift!)
