Wood Slice House Marker – Silhouette March Challenge

Hello and welcome back!  This month our Silhouette Challenge theme was spring, which was perfect since I needed a new spring wreath.  Even though I’ve had my Silhouette machine about 6 months now, I’m still getting used to it.  I have loved everything I’ve been able to do with it, but there is so much more I could be doing!  This month I decided on a simple, quick and easy wreath.  I used a large wood slice to make a door hanging with our initial and house number.  The whole project took less than 20 minutes.

I started with the wood slice and found the simple little pop of red flower at Hobby Lobby. I started by using some ribbon to make a small bow.  I actually nailed the bow to the slice of wood, just to make sure it stays put. Also, I can change it out easier than glue if I want a different color bow some point.  Then, I worked the flower through.

I was hoping I could use my pic scan mat, but it was a little too small. So, I just measured to see what size the wood slice was and drew an oval a similar size in the Silhouette studio.  Then I drew and “R” and wrote out the “seventeen” and used another oval to curve the text.  Then I cut it all out, but it didn’t look quite right.

So, I moved the letters around a bit until they looked better. I also printed a little bit bigger R.  I wasn’t sure the vinyl would stick to the wood for long, so I drew around the vinyl with a sharpie, removed the vinyl and then colored it all in.

That’s it.  So easy!  I thought I was going to stain it afterward, but I liked the way it looked, so I left and hung it up.
