The Walnut Hollow wood slice ornament comes with a smooth surface, a pre-drilled hole, and a piece of jute twine that can be used as a hanger for the ornament.  A polka dot ribbon was used instead to give the unicorn an additional bit of whimsy.

When working with a wood burning tool take safety precautions and work in an open space.

The basic wood burning tool comes with 4 tips the flow point, cone point shading point and the universal point. There are many things you can create with the four basic tips. Once you decide you like the craft, you can invest in more tips and that's when the real fun begins.  

  1. Remove the jute cording from the ornament.

  2. Place the flowers around the head of the unicorn but do not glue down.

These are so cute and so easy to make. I think it will be a great project to work with my grand daughter. She likes to make them and then come Christmas she points out the ones she made when e put them on the tree. I always put her name nd date on each one.
