Repurposed DIY Tree Slice Shelves

Here is a fun project that took shape when I was out getting some exercise around my neighborhood.

I ran across a few interesting tree slices from a tree that had just been cut down.

Found bark turned into shelves

The bark was so beautiful that my wheels started turning the minute I found it.

I began by cutting a straight line along the rough cut of the slice.  I stained the top and the bottom of the slice. 

Using wood glue and screws I attached the slice to a painted board.

I cut out the word Family using vinyl and my
Silhouette machine and stenciled it onto the painted wood.

Following the same plan as above, I made a smaller shelf using a wedged piece. 

The bark is so beautiful, it is nice to show it off.
