These simple decorations are perfect for adding a touch of natural charm to your dining area.
What is a Wood Cookie?
Wood "cookies" are cross-cut sections of wood that are increasingly popular in home decor. They bring a natural, rustic look to any project. Wood cookies are usually cut from hardwood trees like oak or maple and they can come in a variety of shapes - from discs, rounds, slices, and logs.
Since they are cut from logs, they are the perfect size for tabletop decor, like cake stands, candle holders, and centerpieces. You can also add some festive holiday touches to the cookies such as a name tag or a string of lights. They can be left in their beautiful, natural wood state or they can be painted, stained, or decorated with paper or fabric.
How to Use Wood Cookies in Table Decor
Wood cookies are incredibly versatile when it comes to decorating your holiday table. To use them, simply arrange a cluster of wood cookies on your table. Then add accents like candles, pine cones, greenery, and other holiday decor items to create an inviting tablescape.
You might use a large wood cookie at each setting as a charger plate, or a few smaller ones as coasters. You can also place wood cookies around a tiered cake stand or create an eye-catching centerpiece with wooden logs and other festive decorations. You're only limited by your imagination!
