 DIY wood ornaments

I remember making DIY wood ornaments with my family when I was little. Those are such fond holiday memories. I got to relive those moments while making these wood Christmas ornaments. I hope you likey!

 supplies

ultra thin birch wood (can be cut with scissors)
Cricut Explore (yes it can cut wood!)
paint
small paint brush
painter's tape
patterning tape (otherwise you can cut your painter's tape into skinny strips)
twine
Cricut template 1
Cricut template 2
cut-by-hand template

 instructions

If you are cutting by hand download the cut-by-hand template. Print and trace the template onto the wood. Cut out triangles. If you are using a Cricut Explore, download the Cricut template 1 and the Cricut template 2. Upload the images into Cricut Design Space. Delete the space around the images. Size each triangle to 3 inches tall. Make sure each triangle is the same size; otherwise your triangles won't fit together perfectly. Tape your wood to your cutting mat using the painter's tape. Cut out your templates.
