Simple Wood Burned Ornament

Simple Wood Burned Ornament

Our Christmas tree is full of colorful, keepsake ornaments this year. I kind of abandoned our usually themed tree and we opted to put up all the ornamnets we love instead.  It’s the perfect tree!  To offset some of the color I have made a few neutral ornaments like this simple wood burned ornament below.

It’s Day 6 and we are sharing DIY Ornament Ideas!

I have made my share of simple wood ornaments, like these neutral twine ornaments and more.  Today I’m sharing how to make a simple wood burned ornament.  I started with small wood slices, the same slices I used to make this cute snowman ornament, and used my wood burning tool to create simple trees and snow.

I use a basic wood burning tool, it’s one I recommend if you are just starting out and not sure how often you will use this tool.  I find I use mine quite a bit, I love the look and depth you get when using this versus paint or vinyl.  

Using a basic wood slice I first drilled a hole to add a piece of twine for hanging.  You can find wood slice ornament blanks around Christmas time that already have this step done for you.  Next I drew a design in pencil and then went over it with a wood burning tool.  

Be sure to watch the video to see exactly how this is done.

As much as I love looking at the themed trees I always decorate my trees with sentimental ornaments, ones that friend have given to me and those that I have made. I love how your tree comes across so real and personal. The ornaments you created are so special.
