Christmas wood ornaments give your holiday decor a calm feeling. Some like these when decorating with a Scandinavian style, others like the nostalgic nod a natural element adds to Christmas decor.
Making your own Christmas wood ornaments is very easy! Craft stores offer a variety of milled and die-cut ones you can decorate. However, if you have wood scraps you can easily create your own.
