This brings back my childhood memory of carving the tree.
I love these! I actually taught an art project similar to this at an elementary school a couple months ago. Kids love working with these wood slices. (And yes, if you're not familiar or comfortable slicing up logs yourself, you can definitely buy pre-cut rounds at a craft store.)
I'll probably make a mess slicing up the logs, I'll go with the pre-cut rounds like @danidee suggested.
