Welcome Wood Slices

Make your home more rustic and inviting with Welcome Wood Slices. This DIY wood craft shows you how to use chalkboard paint in a new way. As with many painting crafts, these wood signs will take you some time to make, but you can definitely finish them over the course of a weekend. You could even make these wood slices as housewarming gifts to welcome new neighbors. These decorations are easy to personalize with your family's name or simple sayings that you love and want to extend to guests.
