Do you love rustic christmas decor? Then I have the tutorial for you: Grab a piece of wood and make these easy and cute Christmas ornaments!
- scrap wood, such as spruce or pine
Use cookie cutters to make paper patterns for the wood ornaments: I used star, heart and tree cookie cutters.
Trace around the paper pattern with a pencil.
Using a hand saw, cut out the star.
Smooth the wood with a fine wood rasp and sandpaper.
You can distress the wooden Christmas ornaments to give them a rustic look.
The heart is made differently: Roughly cut out a heart shape with straight saw cuts.
Round the edges with a wood rasp.
Then smooth the wood with sandpaper.
Now drill holes into the wood, thread ribbon through the holes and tie to make a hanger. You can leave the wood ornaments like this or stain the wood naturally with steel wool and vinegar. This was the 9th project of my Advent Calendar.
