Earthy Tree Ornaments

made from branches in my own backyard…

I used my miter saw to cut these cuties but because the branches are a bit “twisty” it can be a little scary- so if you try this – make sure the branch you choose is as straight as possible.  Give your hands plenty of room away from your saw blade and hold that log nice and tight. Don’t forget your safety goggles!
   (It was a bit tricky and scary to slice these so thin ….. and I am not one to be afraid of a saw.)
So be careful!
They turned out dang cute so it was worth it – and I have all of my fingers!  🙂
be safe

I stenciled the words and numbers with a sharpie paint pen and sealed them with poly.  Drill a hole at the top and use jewelry twine to string a little gem at top for a fancy accent.

They look awesome on my nature inspired tree!
