Secret Santa Tour: Handmade Wood Ornaments

Can you believe it already?  
Thanksgiving is this Thursday!   I cannot wait and even better that my kiddos are out of school all week so we have already started celebrating!
  
Today I am taking part of an fun Secret Santa tour with some of my favorite bloggers so just for a moment lets think about Christmas!


We all chose names and made each other handmade gifts.  It was fun to be a part of.  
Here is my gift that I made for Lani at Simply Fresh Vintage:




I had some wood pieces left over from my Pottery Barn Knockoff Outdoor Wood Deer Project and wanted to make some ornaments for Lani's tree. 


I cut them down with our chopsaw into half inch pieces. 


I then sanded the wood chips until they were smoothe and traced the letters on each piece by using the same technique as detailed in my Fall Chalkboard Sign Tutorial Post


I colored in the letters with a red Krylon brand Short Cuts paint pen and a green Sharpie marker. 


I added some little hooks and ribbons and a coat of poly, and they were good to go! 


I couldn't decide what words to use so I made two sets, Joy and Noel. 


I hope Lani likes them as much as I do and can use them in her home. 


And now I get to unwrap what another blogger sent to me! 

Check out this cute Memo Board that Beth from Farm Fresh Vintage Finds made for me.  
There are many places that I can use it in my home during the holidays and throughout the year. 



I love it, thank you Beth! 

To see how she made it, go visit Farm Fresh Vintage Finds

This was a fun tour and I hope you enjoy visiting all of the other blogs participating and that it inspires you to try a few of your own DIY/Handmade gifts!
