To make this snowman wood slice ornament, start with wood slices like these. If you are lucky you could cut your own slices from branches in your yard.  I have tiny trees so that’s out of the question here.  I bought a bag of wood slices and have found fun ways to craft with them, like these wood slice tags and reindeer ornamentsThis bag of wood slices will come in handy this season and you will be crafting all the things!
