Easy Spring DIY (Mini Wood Rounds)

These little wood rounds add a natural, spring touch to indoor potted plants or porch containers. They would also be adorable as part of a spring table setting.

They take about five minutes to make (not including dry time) and don't require any special tools.

Here's what you need:
  • Mini wood rounds (I purchased a pack of seven for $3.99 at a craft shop)
  • Sand paper (optional)
  • Modge Podge or any brush on glaze (optional)
  • Paint brush (optional)
  • Vinyl letters, words and/or images (I used bird images, spring, grow, plant and live)

I chose to prepare the wood rounds by quickly sanding each one (my youngest son (5) helped me with this! :). I then used a small paint brush to apply a coat of glaze (Modge Podge would work well). These smoothing steps are optional, but help ensure that the vinyl letters and images adhere well.

I positioned the words and birds how I wanted them on the rounds. Then I burnished (rubbed) the vinyl to the surface of the rounds. A credit card works well to burnish.

Hope you have a wonderful day!


For you locals, I saw this idea and purchased the wood rounds (on sale now!) and vinyl transfers at Ben Franklin Crafts in Redmond.

  1. Cute idea, Julie. Wow is still open if you want to share there, too. The more the merrier.

    1. Thank you Kim! I hopped over and shared... thanks for letting me know it was still open! ;)

  2. Wow! I didn't even know they sold these. How cute!

    1. I know! Turns out you don't need to live on a wooded acre and own a chainsaw to have decorative rounds anymore! :)

  3. What a great idea Julie! Love them. Hugs, Jo

  4. Such a cute idea! My sil gave me a bag of wood rounds she was going to throw away a while ago. Haven't had a chance to do anything with them yet. Will have to make a few. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  5. You have such a gorgeous home!! To live in karachi has always been a dream of mine. I live in Lahor with my family. I'm currently a college student so I don't quite yet have my own home, but I am quite satisfied with decorating my parents.
