Great Gift Series: Old World Shaved Wood Ornament Kits

Magical and sweet shaved wood ornaments that say CHRISTMAS!

You all know it by now - it is NO secret - I absolutely love making ornaments using these beautiful little shaved wood curls…

Jan Dolland: Scandinavian Shaved Wood Artist

available in kits which can be ordered from this beautiful woman, Jan Doland! (She also sells the ornaments made up if you are interested.)

Getting my rear wood shaving geek on!!!

Pop over to this post to get all the information about what is in the kit (basically all you need - except glue - to make 7-8 shaved wood ornaments) AND how to order! And I believe Jan is still selling the kits for $10.00 including shipping.

The kits are a perfect and unique "family gift".

Have a birthday or holiday party coming up - let guests make their own take home ornament party favors.

Or simply order one or two kits for yourself and make your own hand made gifts for friends, co-workers (aren't they the hardest to buy for), and loved ones.

Now is the time to order so your kit will arrive in plenty of time for holiday making!

And if like me you become addicted - that is not a problem! The ornaments look fabulous hanging in windows, dangling from garland, nestled on wreaths, even sprinkled on holiday tables. And they make gorgeous dinner guest favors when tied around a pretty napkin!

A friend ordered a kit last year and shared her tree design - had to make one and now trees are one of my favorites!

But simple, more traditional designs like these are easy to make and are guaranteed to brighten your holidays!

Again, ordering information is here! Better get your order in early - she was sending out kits like crazy last year!!!

 

Note about the tree at the top of the post just in case you are curious. Jan kindly sent me a box of "reject" curls (you see she is very particular about her kits and her ornaments) and it gave me the opportunity to experiment!! The tree required over 100 curles to construct, and while my engineering is not perfect, I love how the light dances through the little swirls. Imperfect engineering was forgotten some time ago!!
