DIY Initials Christmas Ornament

Thanksgiving weekend, we took a trip out east to get our tree. I kept the bottom piece they cut off the tree to make an ornament.  I decided to try the wood burning tool I had bought before we moved and never got the chance to use.

I kept it really simple and used my Dremel wood burning tool to burn our initials and the year.

I then made a loop with twine and used my staple gun to attach it to the back of the ornament.DSC_0663

I don’t know about you, but I love having ornament with memories attached to them.  I love decorating the tree and looking back at the events of years past that the ornaments represent.  This is our first Christmas in our first house and every year I’ll see this ornament and I’ll remember…remember our home buying process… remember the day Steve and I spent together going to the wineries and picking out the tree….remember good times.

May your days be merry and bright,

Geralyn
