My Original Designs for Christmas Ornaments

Yesterday, I posted an article about using the scroll saw to make Christmas ornaments. The ones I showed yesterday were ones I had made off of patterns from Steve Good. Today, I thought I'd share some of my own designs. I like them just as well, but not everyone will.

The one at the top is my version of a Christmas tree. I like the slant and I love canary wood, which is what it's made from. It is my favorite wood so far.

This one is my little snow man. I made the body as one piece and the hat as another. I glued the hat on. I think he turned out pretty cute. He is made out of Padauk wood.

This next one is my version of an icicle. I had some left over wood that had been laminate that I thought would work well for an icicle. My husband thought I was crazy but even he thinks the end result is cute. I can't remember the name of the darker wood in this one right now, but the lighter one is maple.

I had fun making my ornaments. I might try some others this coming Christmas.

Oh wow! I really like the ice cycle one. Have you thought about selling them?

Can you not sell these on eBay or something?

AngelSharum wrote on July 24, 2014, 3:40 PM

I could, but I'd have to laminate the pieces together first and we don't have a lot of wood left over.

I will probably put some ornaments on Etsy this year. Last year I sold them our our page on Facebook. I did pretty well.

If I make them I will share the links somehow. Not sure they'll want me doing it here but maybe they'll have the messaging thing set up by then.

I will let you know for sure.

I love the Christmas trees and the canary wood is beautiful. Your designs are very creative.

Thank you very much. I want to make a lamp out of canary wood one of these days.
