Tree Circle Ornaments

29 Nov

For those who get a real tree at Christmas-time.

A chip off the old block, these wooden ornaments preserve the piney memories of Christmases past.

Materials
* Handsaw
* Pine disk
* Copper wire
* Ribbon trim or cord
* Glue
* Artificial greenery and berries optional
* Marker or craft paint

Instructions
1. Saw a cross section from the bottom of your Christmas tree trunk before putting it into its stand for decorating (a parent’s job). Alternately, you can saw a smaller piece from the middle after the holidays are over. This is your pine disk.

2. Wrap a length of thin wire around the pine disk and twist it into a loop at the top for hanging. Tie on a ribbon, glue on some trim, or add greenery, berries, or other decorations.

3. Write the year across the front with a marker or craft paint. If the wood surface is too rough, sand it down a bit before writing.

4. For an extra remembrance, glue on a fun Christmas-morning snapshot before you store the ornaments away for next year.
