"The tree that fell was actually from our neighbor's yard so my husband had asked if we could keep some of the wood. We were not home when they were doing the clean up and repairing the fence so they only left a few branches for us to use, but it was more than enough for the art project I've been wanting to finish for quite some time now."

"I was able to create this framed wall art using leftover materials we had available, along with some fallen branches in our backyard. So depending on what you have available and the size you want to create, this could be a free or very low cost project! ...[I]f you don't have branches or a saw, you can purchase wood slices from craft stores, Etsy or Amazon."

"Once I had my paint and foam brushes ready I started taping off sections of the wood slices and then painting the slices. I would place one or two pieces of tape on the slice to create geometric shapes and then painted in the empty spaces."

"Once my slices were all painted and dry I placed them on top of the plywood to figure out where I wanted each piece to go. Since I was adding a frame to the plywood I drew a border 1 inch from the edge that I would want my wood slices to stay within."
