Wood is a great craft material to work with and you can create so many lovely ornaments for the holidays. This tree is very easy to saw out and is decorated  with just a bit of dimensional paint and glitter.

Wooden Christmas Tree Ornament




Time required to make one ornament: about 10 minutes

Time required for drying: Overnight
Difficulty Level: Easy

Material List:

- thin plywood or pre-cut star shapes available at your local craft store
- green acrylic paint
- flat paint brush
- white or silver dimensional paint
- iridescent glitter
- scroll-saw
- wire for hanging
- drill with 1.5 mm bit
- sand paper if necessary

Instructions: If you have a pre-cut shape, start with step 3.

1. Print out the pattern to the size you prefer and transfer your markings on plywood.
2. Saw the tree out and sand the edges if necessary.
3. Drill 2 small holes at the top point of the tree.
4. Paint the tree green and let it dry completely.
5. Use your dimensional paint to draw small spirals randomly all over the tree and while the paint is still wet, shake glitter over the dimensional paint. Tap excess glitter away.
5. Let the tree completely dry and then attach a piece of wire to the holes. Coil the wire ends on the back side of the tree to keep it from falling out.
