Wood Sliced Fall Wreath

I’m sure you spent your weekend wondering what we made with that wood weren’t you? :) Well I’m sharing today. It was time to create some fall decor for the apartment and we actually made a couple of projects with that log I shared Friday-one coming later next week to the blog. Today I’m sharing our cute wood sliced wreath!
