DIY Idea: Wood Slice Wall Art

created at: 04/21/2012

Looking to spice up your living room walls on a budget? Well I cam across Debra Pagel's wood slice wall sculptures on Etsy and thought to myself, "Wow that's really cool stuff. And that's actually something I could make!" It's not often that such realizations come to me (my tiny NYC apartment isn't exactly conducive to many sculpture projects).

In all of Pagel's pieces, slices from varying sizes of tree branches are glued (or so I imagine since I don't see any nails) to a base board that looks like plywood. Pretty easy DIY project, don't you think?

I really like the look of all the unpainted wood slices, but there's something very striking about painting some of the slices a single color, like this:

Hi! I've seen some other shapes (like a moon or a heart) do they need a wooden heart shape to attach to or are they sticking together side by side?
