Wood Slice State Ornament

I grew up in New Mexico, so I decided to make some Wood Slice New Mexico Ornaments, but any state would work to show your pride!
New Mexico Wood Slice Ornament

You can cut and sand your own wood slices from thick branches, or you can buy a bag from somewhere like Hobby Lobby for a few dollars.

After sanding the face of the wood slice, I free handed the outline of New Mexico since it's a fairly simple shape. New Mexico's colors are red and yellow, so I painted the inside of the state yellow, and added a red heart.

I drilled a small hole in the top and screwed in a hook. I like this look better than just drilling a hole across the ornament to thread a string through, but that works just as well. I tied a string through the hook, and it was ready to hang on the Christmas tree!

These would be great for an ornament exchange or as Christmas gifts because they're affordable, personal, and they are pretty quick/easy to make.
