STEP 1: Slice thin pieces of wood from a dried log. We used our chop saw and did it nice and slowly with a piece of black birch, but any will do. When the log got smaller, we stopped for safety reasons. Tie a piece of burlap on a flat wooden wreath form first to hang it and then attach the wood slices in a single layer using an adhesive. Do not use hot glue if you are planning to use it outdoors as it can melt and fall apart. ~ Laura Putnam

So we had to cut a very large tree down, so instead of turning it into fire wood we turned it into a patio.  We love it. We used 3-4 inch slabs of western red cedar, laid on a base of rock and sand, with 1/2 inch crushed rock in between. Enjoy.
