Christmas Wood Slice Character Ornament

Wood Slice Christmas Character Ornament

These Christmas characters were so much fun to make! I had prepared the felt pieces for the kids so they were able to complete their characters with minimal guidance. They are woodsy and adorable and I love seeing them on our family tree!

  • Felt
  • Paint
