Joy Wood Slice Christmas Ornament with Cricut

Joy Wood Slice Christmas Ornament Instructions:
Start by cutting a circle out of the scrapbook sheet slightly smaller than the shape of your wood slice. You want a slight border of wood to be showing. Each wood slice will be a different size so do each one individually.
Use the Mod Podge sealant to attach the scrapbook to the wood slice. Use a paintbrush to paint a thin layer of the Mod Podge onto the wood slice. Place the paper circle on the wood slice.
Add another thin coat of Mod Podge to the top of the paper. Use a paper clip or other sharp pointy object to push out the hole for hanging.
While your ornament is drying, cut and weed your vinyl. Sign up for our newsletter and get the JOY svg for free! The design is small enough that you can cut it using either a Cricut Express or Cricut Joy machine. You will find that each wood slice will vary in size. You will need to check the size of the design each time you cut for an ornament.
Apply your vinyl decal to the center of your wood slice once the Mod Podge is totally dry.
Cut a string/ribbon approximately 8 inches long. Thread your string/ribbon through the hole you made with your drill and tie a knot at the end.
Your ornament is now ready to hang in your tree.
