DIY Decoupage Wood Slice Art

Hi Everyone! I’m Jennifer at Town and Country Living and today I’m sharing a simple DIY decoupage wood slice art project.  This project is a pretty way to add natural and inexpensive art to your walls using botanical images.

I love to bring nature inspired decor into the home, and these pretty botanical images with sheet music are the perfect way to do it!

I made 3 of these DIY decoupage wood slice art pieces to hang on the wall or in this case, my kitchen cupboard. They’re super easy to make and it doesn’t take long at all.

Supplies to make botanical decoupage wood slice art

You’ll need a few simple supplies! Wood Slices, Decoupage glue, A soft flat brush or foam craft brush, sheet music (new or vintage), and botanical art prints (find them here at the Graphics Fairy), twine to hang, or a saw tooth hanger for the back. You can find supplies here.

Wood slices for crafting

Start with plain wood slices, which you can get at the craft store. They come in many different sizes, so you could also make a mini-version of this as Christmas ornaments.

Create the first layer of decoupage

I used sheet music as my base layer for my decoupaged project, but you can use any kind of paper for the background including book pages or scrapbook paper. Place the sheet on top of the wood slice and make creases on the paper at the edges of the wood. This is your guide to size the sheet music to the wood slice.

Removing the excess sheet music from a wood slice

To create jagged edges, carefully tear the sheet music to size with your fingers. It doesn’t need to be perfect so don’t get too picky on how it tears.

Book pages and sheet music are fun craft mediums. See how to make book page mushrooms here.

I decided to make the sheet music smaller than the wood slice so more of the wood would show, like a frame. Spread Mod Podge decoupage medium on the back of the sheet music with a small brush or foam brush. Attach the sheet to the wood slice, smoothing out bubbles. You can use your fingers or smooth the paper down with the flat edge of a credit card.

Next, add your art print. I chose nature prints to decoupage atop the sheet music.I left a white border around the nature prints so they’d stand out better against the sheet music.After gluing it in place, smooth out bubbles with your fingers or the edge of a credit card.

Once the Mod Podge dries, drill a hole near the top of the wood slice, and tie a piece of twine through it. if you don’t want to drill a hole, you can also use a saw tooth hanger on the back to hang your wood slice art.

I angled my prints slightly since I didn’t want them to appear too symmetrical. I decided not to add a coat of Mod Podge over the print because I wanted them to have a matte finish.
