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.
- Wood Slice
- Wood burning tool
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.
