I love the look of a mason jar with flowers sitting on a round wood slice. Anyone that has done this as centerpieces? If so do you have any pictures and most importantly where did you get the wood and how much did you pay for it?
You can get the wood at craft stores, but I think it's cheaper when you buy it online in bulk. I'm not using them so I don't remember exact prices, but I think you can get 4-5 slices for $35 on Amazon, and it's probably even cheaper from an actual bulk retailer online.
You can definitely buy the wood slices from somewhere like Michael's. If you have anyone crafty in your family that has power-tools you could even look into making your own. A friend of mine did this. She just took a log from her families property and her dad cut it for her! I'd look into bulk stores, maybe Amazon? Rental companies carry these now, too, I think.
We got ours for free from my in-laws neighbor who is close with H and has a wood mill. But he cuts wood chargers all the time for weddings, he told us, and doesn’t charge much for them. You can get them at craft stores or amazon, but in my opinion they’re pretty expensive if you buy them that way. I would see if there’s a local wood mill or someone you could buy from, or check Facebook marketplace or Craigslist for people selling them after their wedding! We gave most of ours away with our centerpieces, but if we had kept a significant amount I would honestly have given them away to someone in need, because I know how expensive it can get to buy or rent them! I’m included the only pictures I have right now of the centerpieces we did, they’re not the greatest quality photos, but the wood was from a cedar tree!
All the craft stores should carry it, we wanted a little height and a little something personal so we cut pine and aspen trees from our property. But I have seen so many on the recycled wedding groups on Facebook
Some venues have them from previous weddings. We didn't have to buy any. My mom owns a lot of land and they cleared some out and had a lot of wood. My step dad is a carpenter and just sliced up some wood for us which we didn't even need since the venue let us use theirs. Sounds terrible but I didn't ask him to. We did cut small wood slices for magnets ourselves.
My dad had a tree trimmed in the backyard, so my mom & I just grabbed a trunk and sliced our own! For free, too! Lol! Then I bought some stain and sealer & there you have it! Tree cookies is the term im more familiar with down where I live.
