We live in the mountains in Big Bear. So there are bear decorations everywhere – it’s a huge part of the culture here. We even have bear cutouts on our house!

So I decided it would be fun to make a homemade Bear Wood Slice Christmas Ornament since I had some extra wood slices after finishing the Baby Fox Wood Slice Christmas Ornament tutorial.

I think it turned out super adorable! I think we could even whip up a huge batch of these and sell them to tourists over the Christmas holidays! They’d make a really fun handmade souvenir in addition to a fun gift idea.
