These are special invitations — ones that you might make for a handful of close friends. They’ll either need to be hand-delivered or mailed in a small box, but the impact they’ll have is worth the extra effort. Similar to my DIY wood Valentines earlier in the year, the painted wood slice can be reused by the recipient as a photo/note holder through the rest of the year.
- Wood Slices (mine were approximately 4″ in diameter)
- ScotchBlue™ Painter’s Tape
- Acrylic Craft Paint (I used gold, pearly gold, and white)
- White/All-Purpose Glue
- Mini Clothespins
- Invitations (purchased, printed, or handwritten)
- Begin by taping off a section of your wood slice to be painted. I sectioned off about a third of each circle and filled in with gold paint. If your tape is wide (like mine), you can rip it down the middle, since only one straight side is needed. Be sure to press down firmly to keep paint from getting under.
- Acrylic craft paint dries quickly, and you’ll be ready to peel off your tape and start on another section in as little as 20 minutes.
- I tore my tape down the center again, then used the straight sides to make skinny stripes. I made sure to overlap one or both of the other colors with each stripe.
- The mini clothespins can be attached with a thin layer of white glue. Let them dry, then clip your invitation to each wood slice and you’re done.
This would be such a delightful invitation to receive! And long after the party is over, the recipient could reuse the wood slice to display photos, notes, or holiday cards.
