It’s that merry time of year when we bring the woods right into our homes in the form of Christmas trees! It’s become a tradition of many to save a “wood slice” or “wood cookie” from their Christmas Tree, to commemorate that year’s festivities or use in craft projects. A favorite new trend of ours is using wood cookies to make Christmas ornaments, perfect for gifting, using as gift tags, or to hang on one’s own tree. Ornaments can be drawn on, handpainted, or burned with imagery. Here are our Pinterest Picks for Wood Burned Christmas Ornaments.
But will these Wood Slices be well preserved for next year?
The best way to protect your Wood Slice Ornaments from cracking is to treat them with Pentacryl right after they are cut. For small slices, simply soak them in this green wood stabilizer and then dry them slowly – for larger pieces, you may choose our other application methods, listed here. Once the treated wood has dried, it is ready for sanding, painting, wood burning and/or sealing.
