"ESTABLISHED" CHRISTMAS ORNAMENT

I made this particular ornament for my daughter and son-in-law, although I have to say I liked how well it turned out, I can see making these for a wedding gift or bridal shower.
This piece of wood will have a little bit of sentimental value for my daughter; it comes from a limb of an Aspen tree from our backyard....the yard that she grew up in (or maybe I'm the sentimental one).

Anyway, I've been playing around with wood burning....I haven't tried anything too intricate yet, but this particular design lets the beauty of the wood shine through.

It was sprayed a couple of times with a clear protectant finish and left to dry before I added the holiday cheer.

I added a little red bow, some holly leaves and berries and used a  piece of jute as the hanger.

And there you have it, a pretty little Christmas ornament that commemorates their anniversary and something which can be enjoyed for years to come!
