When ever I see logs, I just fall in love with it. I just love rustic, so yes....sometimes people see me carrying branches to my vehicle and you will find them rolling their eyes with a smile.

So when I came across Tracy Meldon's focus tree line art, I just had to do it as I had the branches ! It's super easy and fun to do with kids. No two log slice will be the same as the colors keep changing :-)

First Cut your logs into slices. A chop saw wood be great here ;-)

It would be best if you can dry it well.

Drill a hole and nail your hanging hook.

It is best to soak the slices in wood preservative to prevent termites getting into it.

Now I first coated it with varnish and found out the slices kept drinking it! So I coated it with 2 thick layers of white glue.

If you like it to be just plain rustic, you can now just coat it with varnish. Add hooks if you want to use as a coat hook too :-).

If you like some color, follow next step. Do it with kids, it's fun :-)
